It was a very time consuming and yet a very rewarding experience for me. Running Belly Bliss Catering and knocking out dishes in the kitchen is so different from making these. I had to be in a relaxing and calm zone to make sure everything was just right. I loved the zen like experience. From kneading the fondant, rolling it out at just the correct density, cutting, molding and putting the finishing touches- having to take the time and take in every step was a good change of pace. Oh and waiting 24 hours for the flowers to harden even added to the anticipation.
I knew I had to start with the simplest flower to make- which I was advised is the Dogwood flower. My first try was a bit rough but just like anything- practice and patience was all it took. I'm a total beginner and is so excited to create other lovely pieces.
These Dogwoods are going to be cupcake toppers for an event this weekend. I can't wait to take pictures.
