Hi,
Your cake is just breathtaking. For someone who loves and adores anything flowery I am captured by your sugarcraft techniques and choice of colours.
I hope you dont mind me asking, what do u called the green flower here and which cutters did u used? Many many thanks! Im planning to make my own version of this cake for my mam.
Kind regards,
Ivy

Thank you for your inspiring words!

I am still working on a tutorial for these flowers. Anyway, the green flower is called spider mums (google it so you can see the real one). Basically, I used the same technique illustrated in the book Chocolate Paste Cakes, page 42, (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Chocolate-Paste-Cakes-Sugar-Inspirations/dp/1853915793) on how to make the Chrysanthemums. I just added a small ball of gumpaste in the center for the flower sprays to cling to. For the cutters, I used the daisy cutters.
