This piece was created for the Gardens of the World collaboration.
It was inspired by the beautiful parterre garden of the historic Carnavalet Museum in Paris, France. I was drawn to the curves of the beautiful boxwood hedges, the stone building with arched windows and the wide variety of spring blossoms, all of which shaped my design. Several mediums were used to create this piece including fondant, gum paste, gelatin and wafer paper. The windows are gelatin covered wafer paper, crushed sprinkles were used for the gravel and the flowers are gum paste. I hope you enjoy it as I had so much fun creating it.
