In this lesson Steve shows you how to use the outside wire shape of flowers to be used as a cutter and former for each petal. The flower shape is also used to create tri- coloured textured flowers to be used as direct applique for the side of the cake. Taping of flowers, and creating silver wired spirals forming the first cake project.

3. Etched in Gold

A bold blue background allows for this decorative technique, which was inspired from enamelling to be applied to the flower shape which is painted with golds and blue and the surface sugar can then be etched. Steve will show you how to create wired gelatine gold flowers and a royal iced filigree design.
