How much fun was last night? Sooooo much fun. I watched our professional cake decorator make gorgeous flowers and thought - oh no, another craft I'll be hopeless at! Well, they're not exactly roses (more like frangipanis and lilies) but they're fun to make, fairly easy and so effective. I believe this could become the icing equivalent of crochet!
This is the one I'm least happy with. But something like this would be good for a home birthday cake.
This is my next least favourite . . . it was the first of the flower I tried to make.
This one is getting there . . . the nossel on the icing bag was a bit big.
And my favourite of all . . . which was the second cake I did. I can't believe I made a frangipani. It's quite ironic really as it's my favourite scent and it's one of my favourite flowers (aesthetically speaking).
