Some techniques for modeling perfect sugar flowers

  • Use bobbins in which the ball is in one piece, without joints, so that they do not leave marks and do not tear the petals. If you look closely at the attached image, in the third and fourth bolillo you can see a line of plastic gasket that runs through the bobbin from end to end. That beta that protrudes slightly, could break and tear the petals when you are smoothing their edges.
  • Use metal bobbins, since weighing more, will help you refine the edges better, with a more natural finish. It will also be easier to curl the petals if your flower requires it.
  • Use steam as an ally: to moisten the petals and get more intense colors, to fix the colors once applied ... You can buy a vaporizer or put a saucepan on the fire with hot water and wait for it to boil. But remember to turn it off before passing the flowers, we do not want the possible splashes of water to spoil your work!
  • Always make some extra petals for each of your flowers, as it is easy for some petals to break when it comes to painting or assembling your flower. So you can easily change it without having to wait for it to dry before you can finish your work. In addition, if you have left over, you can always save them without painting and use them for the next flower that you are going to make.
  • Always prepare leaves and loose buds of more, to have ready and at hand when mounting the flowers on the cake. In this way, if at the time of assembling you have some hole that you do not like, you can fill it easily without having to start over. And if you do not use them, do not worry: you can always save them for another composition.

  • At the time of painting the flowers, keep a napkin handy and clean the brush well to avoid stains. Put very little color, remember that once you have painted you will not be able to remove the color again, so it is better to go little by little and adding, than to pass and not have the option to go back.
  • If you are going to make your flowers in a very humid place or on a rainy day, add a little extra CMC to your paste, so that it does not stick. In addition, the humidity will not allow the flowers to dry properly, so it is possible that they remain with the fallen petals and have the appearance of being limp. You can also turn on a dehumidifier in the room where you are going to work.
  • If you want to keep your flowers much longer, you can spray them with a little spray varnish so they do not spoil over time. If you do not have varnish, you can also use a little hair spray, but try it on another surface to see that it does not leave a finish too bright or artificial, it does not look like the one you want to get on your flowers. Obviously, if you spray it with lacquer, please do not consume it ... just to keep it as a souvenir or decoration.
