This expert guide to making sugar flowers is informative and comprehensive.
Each flower tutorial includes clear instructions and lots of step-by-step pictures to make sure they’re easy to follow at home. As well as classic favourites like lilies and roses, Cassie also includes some more unusual varieties like celosia and chilli peppers.
One of the most interesting aspects of this guide is the ‘Before You Begin’ section which shows where inspiration can be found and how you can turn that initial inspiration into your own sugar creation. She advises dissecting your example flower to divide it into its component parts, and each tutorial shows an example of a real deconstructed flower alongside the finished sugar version.
Cassie even shows how you can use these pieces to make your own moulds and veiners so you can be sure your flowers look just like the real thing.
