Cake Flowers Class - Week 2

Flower & Cake Design class has finally gotten interesting. In week 2, we made flowers with royal icing. It is a stiff, sweet icing that hardens when it dries. We learned the rose, rosebud, primrose and apple blossom. 

The great thing about these flowers are that they last for weeks, years even (according to my instructor). So I can make a bunch in advance and bring them to the last class to decorate my final project (a round 8" cake).

We will be learning daffodils and violets next week. We will also get a refresher on the rose, which people seem to struggle with. I, on the other hand, have the rose down. But my favorite, so far, has been making primroses because the petals are little hearts.
