Peachy Pink Peony

It was my goal to make a peony sugar flower during my time off while I’m in between jobs.  After finally getting all the supplies (cutters, veiners, celboard, floral wires, floral tape, etc.!), I finally made my first peony!  The center of it isn’t exactly “anatomically” correct, but once I get the right stamens, I’ll definitely try it again.  The next step will also be to add some leaves.  This flower took me about 3 hours per day over a period of 3 days to complete, and it was SO fun!  I can’t wait to make more!

Peonies are one of my absolute favorite flowers along with dahlias, gerbera daisies, orchids, and ranunculus!  Hopefully I can learn how to make my other favorite flowers someday! :)

Peach and pink petal dust was added to make the flower look more lifelike.

Pretty Summer Flowers

Okay we’ll admit it.  This cake wasn’t made in the summer, but the bright and vibrant colors do remind us of the warm season that is upon us!

Friends of ours Wade and Kristina got married not too long ago, and Kristina’s mom requested a simple cake for her bridal shower that incorporated her colors: bright orange, light green, and yellow.

These flowers took a really long time, but were so fun to make!

There’s something about a simple cake with a few big bold flowers that I love.  We hope you enjoy this one, too!
