1. Making the Peonies Part 1

For the full tutorial see Chevron Silver Leaf Wedding Cake

Paul shows us how to make very simple peonies which are easy to create and quick to assemble. As you will see, Paul isn’t very strict when it comes to the amount of petals per row and really his rule is “as long as it looks nice”. There is no need to worry about how accuracy here, relax and have fun with it.

2. Making the Peonies Part 2

In this lesson, Paul goes back to finish off the peonies now that everything has dried. He shows us how to assemble the flower and gives tips on where to place the petals to give it the correct shape. Now that all the flowers have been completed, we can move onto the cake.

3. Dusting the Peonies and the Daisies

It’s now time to dust the peonies and as you will see there are a lot more colours used for this. As Paul is dusting the entire flower, he uses a large and small brush. Remember to lightly dust the petals and add more colour as you get closer to the tips, for the centre of the peonies. For the daisies, Paul uses yellow and just a touch of pink to add a vintage look. Now it’s onto the leaves.
