Here i have hand made a life size sugar rose.
This is made out of flowerpaste, which dries to an all most porcellain finish.
Very delicate but i can roll the icing out so thinly you can see print through it, which gives the rose a translucent effect when made up.
Each petal is cut by hand and veined using Squires kitchen Tea rose silicone mould and then seven layers are made into the rose. The rose measures 4ins in diametre approx
