1. Succulent Plant

For the full tutorial see Rustic Wedding Cake

Using a set of succulent cutters arranged in size order we can create the leaves for the succulent plant ready to be fastened together.

Different sized wire gauges are used for the different sized petals as follows :

  • Small petals – 28 gauge wire
  • Medium – 26 gauge wire
  • Large – 24 gauge wire

3. Dusting the Petals

Mish starts the lesson with a chat about colour schemes which will aid in your dust colour selection. For this lesson we use a mixture of Sunflower Sugar Art Chartreuse and Moss Green coloured edible dusts.
