Sorry you haven't heard from me in a little while; I was very busy making a Turducken for Thanksgiving. This weekend I've been back at the sugar, however! I am preparing for another cake competition next weekend. This is another local contest-- The Holiday Cake Affair.
I've spent a lot of time playing with gum paste this weekend... I made 3 of these giant white poinsettias.
I have a few other things in the works too, but I'll keep it a surprise... ;)
Each of these poinsettias consists of almost 40 different pieces, so they really took quite some time. However, I'm really happy with how they turned out. I just hope I find a safe way to secure them to my cake.
Hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving! More sugary goodness coming your way soon... it's going to be a busy week for me! :)
