Although sugar flower peonies are still in very high demand, the flower that is currently holding strong in second place is the ranunculus! I have had many inquiries about this adorable flower, and have been so happy to have the opportunity to both make them and teach them!
I recently worked with two lovely and talented students for a full day of sugar flower private instruction. On the curriculum...gorgeous deep pink ranunculus flowers, and the always elegant gardenia.
Getting started...all the tools and supplies in place:

Many, many thanks to my wonderful students...it was a great day filled with laughter and some fabulous flower-making!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
