You will need
For the flowers
• Rainbow Dust Metallic Food Paint – black and dark gold
• white flower paste
• edible glue
• royal icing
• 5 petal rose cutter
• small circle cutter
• fine paintbrush
• flower former
1 Firstly, roll out your flower paste, then use a five petal flower cutter to cut out each shape, and use a small circle cutter to cut out the centres. Secure each circle shape with edible glue into the centre of each flower shape. Place these into a flower former to dry.
2 Start by painting a swirl type design into the centre of each petal using Black Metallic Food Paint and a fine paintbrush.
3 Paint around the outer edge of each flower shape and the circle shape centre using Dark Gold Metallic Food Paint. Leave to dry.
4 When dry, secure the flowers in place, onto your cake using royal icing.
5 Use the same flower design to decorate cupcakes, rather than a cake.
