iced in the press...

I was kindly asked to be on Your South Wales Wedding's panel of experts for the current March / April issue. The hot topic was flowers and the question related to the use of fresh flowers on cakes. This is something I get asked about fairly regularly. I absolutely adore fresh flowers and they can look truly beautiful when used as part of a cake's design. However you do need to exercise a little caution. Increasingly flowers are being grown for the mass market using large amounts of chemicals and so it's important to check with florists that they can supply organic blooms. Personally I love the design effect of sugar flowers. I love the process of hand-moulding them and the fact that sugar flowers can be coloured, sized and styled to perfectly compliment the proportions and style of a cake. From a practical point of view too, with sugar flowers you are guaranteed that they will stay fresh and perfect throughout the day!
