How to make a palm tree

As with most things in cake decorating there are several ways to go about something!

Perfectly suited to a beach scene or beach wedding cake this palm tree is a quick and eye catching addition to a cake. Here Paul shows the way he was first taught how to make the palm tree by using coloured paper card, florist wires and rolled sugarpaste. He suggests an alternative to using sugarpaste for the trunk would be to use chocolate rollo sweets, mind you a few might go missing and not make it onto the cake!

This week’s addition to the Online Courses library is a full beach scene where Paul uses florist paste for the palm leaves and brushes with bronze and gold dusts to fantastic effect. He creates a beautiful sunbathing model dressed in a stylish bikini.
