Have you ever considered the design opportunities available when using ready-made sugar decorations? There is far more choice than you’d expect and we are super smitten with the SugarSoft® range from Culpitt! You may think this isn’t the way to go but consider this: ready-made flowers can give you fast, consistent, and pretty results saving you time and money. The key? Get creative with them! We had a play around, here at Cake Deocration & Sugarcraft, to see just how versatile this range can be...
ROSES OR RUFFLES?
Our first thought on seeing the stunning SugarSoft® range was that it would make a beautiful base wedding tier, without the stress of making endless ruffles! And we were right! The flowers have depth so that you can create designs that include your own florals and foliage which makes them feel a little heavy, but they adhered to a delicious soft royal iced tier with ease. Because they are already firm, they supported each other as we built the roses up around the cake.
Imagine how quickly you could theme a table like this with a box or two of these edible SugarSoft® pansies (we absolutely love these!).
IT’S ALL A MATTER OF TASTE…
We adore botanically correct sugar flowers and the art of creating wired blooms but, we also like a cake to look deliciously edible. SugarSoft® gives you a consistent design that also tastes sweet and has no more bite than the sugarpaste you cover your cakes with, making it really surprisingly good to eat.
TIME IS MONEY…
Once you have a play with these ready-made florals you will quickly realise you can save valuable decorating time mixing ready made with your own statement florals. The results are super effective, easy to create and tasty too! We attached the roses onto a soft royal icing, which set firm quickly and tastes amazing!
These gorgeous roses are soft enough to eat straight from the pack and have a wonderful delicate vanilla flavour, not sickly sugar! You can even get these roses in metallics too!
