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

Camellia flower

Have you seen Camellia flowers before? I hadn’t until earlier today when I was googling David Austin roses and found this beautiful image. They are absolutely beautiful flowers, almost like ranunculus but with a lot fewer petals.. So of course I had to make one out of sugar 😉

Check back tomorrow for the tutorial! Continue reading

They are quite easy and quick to make and would be pretty as cupcake toppers or on top of a cake! For this tree I used a small, round piping tip but you can use any tips you like! Check out my lace doily tutorial here for inspiration! Here’s the tutorial! Continue reading

Tutorial – white and purple peony

I’ve been making flowers for almost two years now, but it has taken me until today to try gumpaste for the first time. I’ve always found it too expensive and thought that sugarpaste, at just a fourth of the price, worked just fine. 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
