Daisy Tutorial

Hi everyone!

So, as a first entry of my blog, I’ve made this really simple Daisy tutorial.

Materials:

Non-Edible:

  • #20 or #22 white floral wire
    wire cutter
    wire bender
    foam pad
    brushes (one for edible glue and one for painting)
    daisy or sunflower/gerbera cutter
    ball tool
    veining tool
    flower forming cups
    flower drying stand
    scribing needle or toothpick
    green floral tape (^moss green)

Edible:

  • flower paste (^HARD ROCK Flower Paste by BeMagenta)
    edible glue
    yellow edible pollen (^SUGARTEX Granular Food Color ‘Mimosa’ by Sugarflair)
    green food color dust (^High Strength Professional Dust Food Colour ‘Leaf Green’ by Squires Kitchen)

^This were the products I’ve used in this tutorial, just as example, but you can use any you have or prefer to use.

How-To:

Daisy centers:

1. Cut a wire in 3 (around 12cm each).

2. Roll one side of the wire around a brush to make a circle (img1).

3. Bend the end of the round side (img2).

4. Bend over itself (img3).

5. Bend in a way it looks like a little hat (img4).

6. Make a small ball with sugar paste (a little bigger than the round side of the wire you’ve just made) and make it into a disk (img5).

7. Add glue to the wire and “squish” into the disc you’ve previous made (img6) and let it dry for about 10/15min.

8. Make another small ball and glue it to the previous structure. Model it until turn like a little mushroom top (img7) and let it dry for about 10/15min.

9. Apply glue to all surface and add the pollen until all surface is covered (img8) and let this centers dry for at least 1 hour (I normally do all the centers and let them dry overnight to make sure they’re all dry for easy handling).

Daisy flowers:

1. Roll a piece of sugar paste (about 1mm thick) and cut two flowers with the cutter.

2. With a ball tool, soften the centers from the top of each petal to the center (img9).

3. Roll the veining tool on each petal (on both sides) to make the petals imprints (img10).

4. Put a flower into a flower former and apply glue into the center of one flower and place the other flower on top, trying to place the petals (from top flower) into the spaces between the petals of the bottom flower (img11) and let it dry for at least 2 hours (like the centers, I normally do all the flowers and let them dry overnight to make sure the flowers won’t loose their shape).

5. Apply glue to the center of the flower and on the bottom of the center you previously made, and insert the wire into the middle of the flower (img12) and let them dry in a flower drying stand for about 1 hour.

6. Cover all the wire with the green flower tape.

7. Make a little cone with flower paste. With the ball tool, do a cup shape in the larger side of the cone. With a scribing needle or a toothpick, poke all the surface. Insert the wire into the center of the cone cup you’ve just made (img13).

8. Dust the cone cup with the green food color dust (img14).

And that’s it!! You’ve made a pretty flower that you can add on top of cupcakes, on flower arrangements, well, wherever you want.
