Purple Perfection Peony


Peonies are one of my favorite flowers, we have had them adorn our landscaping for almost 22 years; I remember planting our first peony plant with Sydney (she was almost two) and it just happened to be Mother’s Day. As I was covering the the second cake Sydney came through the door ready for 10 days of fun (she is spending the summer in DC).

Really detailed tutorial – thank you for sharing. I’d love to see behind the flower to see what it looks like from the back – what do you do with all the wire from the peony? do you cut it short and just sit it on the cake?

I use a small tube, the cake looks almost the same from the back..there is really is “no back” to cakes. Most client want a 360 degree view.
I place the wires in the tube and bend in place.

Hope that helps,
Bobbie
