It’s almost wedding cake time! I’ve been practising flower arrangements on a polystyrene dummy. It’s very comforting to know I have made enough roses over the last two weeks. Also, rather conveniently I have tested two wedding cake flower sets at once as I have two cakes to do.
Advice to anyone making flowers out of modelling paste for a wedding cake…. start EARLY! They are fiddly and time consuming. They also need steaming to bring out their colour as they’re covered in icing sugar and look pale. Once dry they are very brittle and it’s heart breaking when you drop them and they break into a thousand bits! It’s all good though, just don’t sit on them. Wow, I should get paid for this advice… 😜
