Peonies cake topper
This is a cake I did in 3 days for a very dear and long standing friend of mine’s 60th… she has been like a sister to me and we have remained so close for over 36 years. She loves flowers and butterflies so hence this theme.
The sugarpaste peonies are my first attempt and the sugarpaste roses are simple ornamental ones to save time. the sugarpaste butterflies I used a cutter and then hand painted them. These were also my first butterflies.
My peony inspiration comes from Alan Dunn… my guru in sugar florals. http://http://www.alandunnsugarcraft.com/
