Blossoms…

Please accept my apologies if I have been MIA of late, however, I am positively the luckiest person on the planet. You see, I have been spending every available second at Faye Cahill Cake Design. Faye has kindly taken me on for work experience and I am loving every second of it. So I thought I might share a few tidbits of what I get up to during my time with Faye. Blossoms…

Once all these tiny blooms have been made they then need to be positioned on the wedding cake like so…

┬áSo much fun! Can’t wait for my next work experience day!

  1. Hello Linda
    The blossoms look beautiful. Great website. Interested to know at what point in time you attach them to the fondant cake – and how? Ie Does the fondant need to still be soft – curious as to how to place the top tier on before the fondant is set; yet not too set to prevent flowers to be attached on the sides (ie with wire pins, or just with sugar ‘glue’).

  2. Hi Sharon,
    I usually stick the blossoms on with a touch of royal icing. The fondant should be fine for them to be applied straight away after applying the fondant. I usually decorate the cake as close to delivery, so perhaps the day before delivery depending on time restraints. You will need to push dowel rods into the base tier to hold the pressure of the next tier. The next tier should also be on it’s own board of same size as tier. Hope this helps and good luck with your brother’s wedding cake!
    Linda
