Equipment:

  • pink and purple gel food colouring
  • pink and purple flower paste

  • 26 gauge wire
  • green florist tape
  • star cone tool
  • cone tool
  • ball tool
  • scissors
  • pliers and wire cutters
  • piping bag and small nozzle

1

Cut some 26 gauge wire into quarters and create a small hook at the end of each wire using pliers.

2

Form a small cone of pink flower paste and insert a cone tool to create a hole in the centre.

3

Insert the wire through the hole until the hooked end reaches the centre.

4

Using scissors make five cuts into the top of the cone. Pull apart to form five petals.

5

Use your fingers to pinch together each of the petals to create a more rounded look.

6

Place the flower upside down on a foam pad and use ball tool to flatten each petal.

7

Insert the star end of the cone tool into the centre of the flower. Create several flowers in this way and leave to dry.

8

Once dry, pipe five small dots of royal icing in the centre of the flower.

9

Brush some pink petal dust into the centre of the flower.

10

Attach some green florist tape to each of the flowers to cover the wire.

11

Insert a sausage of purple flower paste onto a hooked wire and taper the end.

12

Use scissors to cut into the purple paste, starting at the base.

13

Continue to cut until you reach the end of the paste, rotating as you cut.

14

Create lots of flowers, following the above instructions and then leave to dry.

15

Attach some green florist tape to each of the flowers to cover the wires.

16

Using florist tape begin to tape your flowers together alternating wax flowers and lavender.

17

Continue to attach the flowers until you have created the desired length.

 
18

Attach the flowers to your cake, securing in place with a little royal icing.
