It's my mom's and her husband's first anniversary! For a present, I decided to recreate the top tier of their wedding cake for them.
Their wedding colors were black, white, and red. Their cake had three tiers with a bouquet of fresh, real roses and baby's breath on top, and black stenciled accents on the side.
I decided to create a topper of hand sculpted sugar paste roses and baby's breath that they would be able to have for a keepsake.
Each rose takes more than half an hour to sculpt! In my decorating classes, I learned the "Wilton Method" of creating sugar paste roses, and they are beautiful, but I saw roses online from a baker in England who made really gorgeous roses, and I wanted mine to look like that, so after some experimentation, I figured out how to do it! I was really pleased with the result.
