Fit for a Queen

by Paddi Clark


Learn how to make myrtle, lilies and daffodils and create this crisp, green and white bouquet.

To view this project's edibles, equipment and instructions, you will need to sign in or join Cakes & Sugarcraft Magazine - it's FREE and only takes a minute.

This beautiful white arrangement includes some traditional flowers that have been used in royal bouquets over the past years. Roses were Princess Diana’s favourite flower, the Duchess of Cambridge's favourite are said to be white lilies, and both flowers are in season in spring and summer. Finally, all royal wedding bouquets have included a sprig of myrtle to symbolise a happy marriage. As roses are often one of the first flowers that sugar florists learn to make, they are not covered in this project. However, there are many other useful resources which teach you how to make them, such as Sugar Flowers for Beginners by Paddi Clark.
