Sugar Cymbidium

It has been raining for the past few days but yesterday was dry so quickly took the opportunity to make my sugar paste cymbidum for the coming wedding.

Today the petals are dry as bone...might as well dust them up and assemble. 

Also made a sugarpaste box which looks like a cake for a hantaran in KL.  Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo of it in all haste!

Depending on the weather again I might have to make peonies tomorrow.  Actually I am so tired of making the same flowers but when customers want that....I have to make.  Cannot convince the bride another type coz she said she fell in love with my sugar peonies.
