Flowers from Cake Connection

I got a visit from Miss Nancy of Cake Connection a few days ago. She brought with her some sample of gumpaste flowers which they are selling. I must tell you that I am in love with all the flowers ! See the one below, this is called Alstromeria. Look at the colours, so vivid and alive !

I am so grateful to Cake Connection for sponsoring the flowers. The price for this is RM24.60 for 6 pieces. To me, the price is very reasonable. This amount is enough to deco a 3 tier wedding cake. Imagine the time and skill needed to make this flower. Each petal has to be wired and then bunch again to make one whole flower. Buying would make life so much easier :) .

So I decided to try out the flowers on my cake today. Made a 2 tier cake. The flower itself is already colourful, so I thought a simple design for the cake should be enough. Completed covering the cakes in fondant.

Looks pretty empty kan.. then I added the borders and flowers :

And, jeng..jeng..jeng (drumroll, please :mrgreen: ), my cake :

Of course these flowers can be wired and arrange into a spray, and you can add leaves, branches and so on.. but for today, this is what I was able to do.

Still on the topic of Cake Connection, I am pleased to announce that I will be teaching 2 classes there next month. Fondant cupcakes and Sugarpaste modelling. You can check out their website for more details.

Till the next project.. take care.
