Sugar Dahlia

I had a little bit of this pale yellow icing left so decided to try another Dahlia. Have been trying to perfect this flower for a long time. I have made this one on a cell bud with a wire. I have not dusted it yet but I might!
I have not used ANY cutters. Just a plastic bag to push out the petals and sugar glue.

Goreti ...

I really love this. Had never thought of doing it using that method. I might just give it a try.

Nancy Travis ...

Beautiful!

Joyce Nimmo ...

WOW Amazing :)

Lisa Templeton ...

Aw wow thanks so much! Try it Goreti! Its just the same method as roses but folding the petals inwards. And you just need to make wee sausages of paste then spread out long and thinner petals. I make two out of one sausage of paste. Lol i think i will have to do another to show you.
