This is a spontaneous thing my daughter and I thought of making last weekend.
We have decided to make cupcakes and decorate them with cute roses and blossoms for her to give to her teachers as Valentine's Day treat.
I made a dozen chocolate cupcakes and swiss meringue vanilla buttercream frosting.
A very easy cake decorating project this week that even kids can do, well except for making the roses. They can cut the blossoms and put heart sprinkles.
I arranged the cupcakes in a dessert box for a nice presentation.
Do you like them?
Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!!!
I am finding myself in awe at the works of sugar artists who make wonderful sugar flowers.
I am settling at looking closely at their works and teaching myself through trial and error.
Trying to acquire a good result.
I still have yet to perfect my roses, hydrangea, peony, ranunculus or Calla lily
but I think I'm quite satisfied with my filler flowers at least.
It is the easiest one to make.
So I thought I'd share with you all how I made these filler sugar flowers.
Here's the step-by-step instructions with pictures on how to make filler sugar flowers.
For making sugar flowers it is advisable to use gum paste.
To start, cut a #24 gauge wire into three or four parts.
Using a long nose pliers, make a hook in one end of the wire.
Bend the wire over to make a little hook in the end of your wire,
The hook will help secure the wire to the flower so it will not come off easily.
