Handmade Sugar Flower Ideas for Weddings - as part of the cakes & dessert series by GeoBeats.
Hi. My name is Anna Knaus and I am Bonnie Coberg, of Modern Luxe Events and we make edible decorations and paper products for weddings. Sugar flowers are a great way to decorate a cake and give it more glamor, make it look more expensive. Now a sugar flower is made out of fondant and gum paste which is sweet and malleable, but it dries very hard so it can keep its shape during travel or during hot weather. Typically sugar flowers are made to go on wedding cakes, but they can also be used as a decoration on a dessert table. These sugar flowers look fragile but they actually hold up really well and they are firm to the touch so they are not going to melt on you or fall apart.
We color each of them custom to the bride’s color tones. We use different tools and techniques to make them look like real petals. These are also sugar flowers and we put them on a branch and it looks like a cherry blossom, so those are just some ideas on how to use sugar flowers at your wedding.
