So a while ago I posted a photo of a birthday cake I decorated with flowers.
A friend had asked me to decorate a cake for their 25th wedding anniversary. This was my first practise at calla lilies, and it turned out later on I had made them upside down! That is why we practise!
She had found a picture on the internet of a purple cake (see it here) so all I had to do was make some lilies for the top, and then a few to decorate the sides.
I bought some heart shaped cutters and some little cones (for the flowers to dry on) and some flower sugar paste (which I only found out about at the cake show). She wanted a pink circle for the top tier, but I did that with normal fondant icing.
I gave them to her last week, and was really pleased to see a photo of the finished cake (as I only did the decorations to go on it).
Not sure why it is so massive!
But I am so pleased with how they turned out. I think using the flower sugar paste was much better as it could be rolled much thinner.
It has made me get more excited about decorating Christmas cakes now. I need to start looking for ideas.
