I used the cutter with 5 petals with a point (a succulent cutter), but any 5 petal cutter would work just fine. Ruffle the borders in a thick foam pad and give it a concave shape on the thin foam pad. Shape it in the small cup putting one petal over the previous.
Country flowers vary a lot. In this case I chose to use a daisy base topped with a star flower.
Since I am going to use less orchids then the other flowers, and orchids are really tough to do, I decided to wait until I have more of the other pieces done. So my next steps are going to be the leaves and the cake topper, then painting and assembling the flowers with the centers and, finally making the orchids.
This month me and my significant other celebrate our first wedding anniversary and the date could not pass without a cake!
As you can see, the amount of flowers will be challenging, but, well, it is a special occasion! On the next days I’ll be posting my progress.
- 2 tiers (6 in and 8 in)
- Orchids (white/yellow/dark red)
- Wild roses (white/yellow)
- Country flowers (white/yellow)
- Leaves (light green/pearl dust)
- Cake topper: quilling silhouette
- Quilt pattern
- Sugar Pearls
Yet again I am surrounded by sugar flowers. Today a selection of wild rose (garden rose), daisy and a perennial tulip (a kind of hybrid tulip that has some frills).
I confess being in love with sugar flower making, but soon I’ll come up with new projects and, of course, new cakes!
