Gumpaste Orchid Lei...

A bride called and wanted an orchid lei for a grooms cake. How fun is that??? It was to match the brides cake and the other tropical flowers I made. This was so fun to put together after I made all those tiny orchids..

I couldn’t wrap the wires like usual since I couldn’t turn the lei I had to just wrap the tape around and keep the lei still. It was a bit difficult and slow going but I did it all without breaking any flowers.

I took this photo on a straw hat for display.

It amazes me that you were able to string them together this way! That had to be very very tricky!

it was a bit tricky not to break the flowers.. you can’t twirl the lei as it gets longer so you have to twist the tape around…
