Daisy Wedding Cake
We had the opportunity to make a wedding cake for J's wedding tomorrow. I've been very nervous about it for the past week, this being our first 2-tier wedding cake !
Preparation began a week ago when the order was confirmed, from soaking the dried fruits with brandy, to making the sugar paste. Gosh, I made 3 kg of sugar paste this time & it was so so tough kneading it, especially when tinting it a pastel blue shade !!!
I'm still not confident in making 3D flowers yet, so I rely on my daisy plunger cutter set.
I hope the next time I have the chance to make a wedding cake again, I'll be able to come up with some really 'real' looking sugar flowers .......
