Lilies and Dragons

This was my first time making wired lilies, took me a few days and i had quite a few broken petals! this was also the first cake iv’e made for someone i didn’t know because cake decorating is my hobby and have only ever made for friends and family, more people i don’t know are starting to ask me for cakes but am definitely not ready to go ‘live’ yet!! i was very nervous and found it very scary!! you ladies that do it day in and day out are amazing! thankfully the people i made it for loved it so i was so relieved!! was for a welsh lady (hence the dragons) who loved lilies, big thank you to Bev Murray who was very supportive and very encouraging whilst i panicked making this cake!! i hope you like it, thank you for looking :-)

Toni (White Crafty Cakes) ...

Oh my goodness Elli, this is AMAZING! I always read the description of the cake in my inbox before I click on the link to the actual picture, and when you said your first time making a wired lily, I thought one or perhaps two, but my word, you made at least 22 (if my count is correct), WOW!!!!! I only make cakes for family and friends too, as they are very happy just to get anything I make, but a stranger, now that would be scary!

Lisa Salerno ...

A gorgeous cake !! And I bet you can now make lollies with your eyes closed x

NooMoo ...

Absolutely stunning elli! So pretty and neat! Can also completely understand what your saying as we’ve just started taking orders from non friends and family and is so scary. Your works lovely so you shouldn’t worry :-) x
