Fondant Flowers

This is a crazy new foray into cake decorating for me. I’m making my first wedding cake for two of my friends who are getting married this weekend. I’ve made a couple of birthday cakes before, but nothing that has this level of detail. And never wired fondant flowers!

The big bake and build is starting on Thursday evening, however making the flowers started on Saturday. It should have started last week but the supplies didn’t turn up until Saturday morning, so I’m now playing catch-up, so making these little babies is a little more stressful than it really needed to be. I’ve finished the leaves; the small dark purple flowers and buds; and need to wire these burgundy ones up. Then I need to do another three different coloured / varieties of flowers. I’m hoping I’ve got enough flowers, but also enough time to make them all. 

Despite the stress, it’s quite fun. The final thing I need to figure out is how to secure the flowers to the side of the cake…
