Cascading Sugar Roses and Petal Ruffles

Todays Sugar Flower Sunday is all about sugar roses. I love the simplicity and elegance of a wedding cake with only sugar roses. It has a really modern yet timeless look. The sugar roses on this cake were made to match the roses in bride, Beverley's fresh flower bouquet. A gorgeous colour palette of pinks, purples and ivory sugar roses cascaded down the top two tiers of the cake. 
The pretty ruffles on the bottom tier were created using one of my favourite techniques- Petal Ruffles. I have a tutorial for this technique in my dove grey wedding cake tutorial in my online shop here   Don't forget to sign up for out mailing list while you are over there, I'll be sending out some discount codes very soon. 

Here is a closer look at the different colours of the sugar roses in some close up shots. Which is your favourite? I loved the deeper pink shade!

How to make Sugar Sequins

Sugar sequins look so pretty on wedding cakes, they add such a lovely delicate sparkle.  I love to use sequins on wedding cakes to embellish sugar lace and to add some extra sparkle to my winter wonderland designs. I'm going to show you how to make sugar sequins using cake lace. In this tutorial I used the sequins cake lace mat and white original cake lace by Claire Bowman. 

1. Carefully measure out 50ml of water and pour into a stand mixer.

2. Add four tablespoons of part A powder from the Claire Bowman cake lace set. Mix on high for 2 minutes.

3. Add half a teaspoon of Part B liquid from the Claire Bowman cake lace set.

4. Mix on high for about 5 minutes until the cake lace looks smooth.

5. Pour a small amount of Cake Lace mixture onto the sequin mat and spread out with a knife.

Back to Blogging

After a break from blogging last year,  I'm back with lots of exciting new plans for the blog.  I'll be adding three new types of posts to the blog over the coming weeks. On 'Wedding Cake Wednesday' I'll post wedding cakes I have been working on, as well as some tutorials and wedding cake trend posts. I'll start by catching you up with some of the wedding cake designs from last year that I haven't posted yet and a sugar sequin tutorial. 
In 'Friday Favourites' I'll post my current favourite products and techniques along with some tutorials and reviews

On my 'Sugar Flower Sunday' posts I will show you in more detail some of the sugar flowers I have been working on, along with some tutorials and behind the scenes shots.

I'd love to hear from you if there is anything you would like to see on the blog and any requests for tutorials.
