The project I was working on this past week was a floral cake topper - created with a variety of sugarpaste flowers, and arranged on a dome of Styrofoam to make a bouquet. The flowers included white peonies, green and blue hydrangea, white sweet peas and freesia, filler flowers, buds and leaves. Lots of little pieces in this one!
Here are a few photos of the flowers when I first made them, but had not yet started the dusting and coloring process:
I wanted to add a little bit of blue, as this topper was designed to be used on the top tier of a large wedding cake, and a subtle "Something Blue" was an important element. A few small bouquets of pale blue hydrangea worked perfectly.
A look from the front of the bouquet - on a piece of Styrofoam for a better photo:
The flowers from the top of the bouquet:
Close-up of some of the flowers...and the topper is on a 6" Styrofoam round so I can get a good feel for how the final top tier might look:
