Sugar Phalaenopsis Orchids

Handmade Orchids

I recently spent a couple of days making just five sugar orchids, which consisted of 30 different components.  Made from gum paste, each petal and centre is handmade and wired then left to dry overnight. Once dry they are dusted with colour to give depth and a sense of authenticity to the flower.  Each wire is wrapped with floral tape then the five petals and a centre are wrapped together to form the orchid.  Finally, they are steamed to set the dusted colour and to give a lovely sheen to the flower.  I can’t wait to see them on the cake along with the red peonies made previously.
