Tutorial – camellia flower

IMG_9539-001

It’s been quite some time since I posted a flower tutorial so it really is about time! 😉 I posted some pictures of this camellia flower yesterday and now I’ve put together a tutorial for it!

This flower was actually quite tricky since you want the petals to only touch each other at the base to give it a realistic look. So you probably need some gumpaste flower making experience or it will be quite hard.. But here’s the tutorial! Continue reading

Tutorial – gingerbreadhouse

Less than a week until Christmas! How crazy is that!? I’m guessing I’m not the only one spending all free time baking? 😉 So I’m  just stopping by quickly to share some pictures and instructions for the gingerbread house I made yesterday. If anything is unclear, leave a comment and I’ll answer as well as I can! I found the template here and it is amazing, very well made and the pieces fit together so well! Continue reading

But recently I’ve felt that the sugarpaste has limited my options and some ideas just haven’t worked because

Tutorial – chrysanthemum without cutters

IMG_9952-001

When I made mini roses out of modelling chocolate last week there was quite a lot of left overs so I spent this Friday afternoon making this red chrysanthemum flower with it. It was a lot of fun and the modelling chocolate worked surprisingly well for making flowers! Continue reading

Tutorial – modelling chocolate mini rose

IMG_9496

It’s about time I post another flower tutorial, don’t you think? These super cute little roses were made for my Halloween dessert this weekend (I know it’s too early but I just couldn’t wait! 😉 ), but unfortunately I didn’t like how they looked with the rest so they are still left unused.. I made them from home made modelling chocolate, according to the recipe here. Continue reading
