Should you?

You would think that sugar artistry is only for persons interested in cakes, but it’s so much more than that.

It’s a fantastic way to relax, sitting listening to music, and watching these amazing flowers being created from a piece of flower paste.

Speaking about flower paste, why do you think it’s called gum paste? I find that term so inappropriate for this fantastic medium. Flower paste or petal paste are so much better.lily

I did those flowers a few years ago, with Lesley Herbert, at Barking College.  She is so amazingly talented, it was a privilege to be tutored by her. Up to today it still remains one of my favourite pieces.


The flowers above were done for a co-worker. It was such a joy working on these.

So back to the question – Should you?

I think you should.
