Just Golden

Have you ever just fallen in love with something?  I mean - not like when you met your husband - more like when you first realized you had a talent and that talent brought you joy?

I love making flowers out of sugar.  It requires a lot of time and patience, but it brings me so much joy to take that lump of sugar paste and turn it into edible art. 
And by the way...I think I'm getting better with the camera!

This week, I was asked to make a golden anniversary cake.  Better than that, I was asked to make a golden anniversary cake with a bouquet of gum paste roses. 

I can't wait for the day I get a bride who asks for piles of roses falling down the side of some gorgeous, multi-tiered cake.  Know anyone who would be interested in something like that?  Send her my way:). 

In the meantime, I will enjoy my week with these lovely roses.  Just...golden!


  1. Amy, these are by far your best yet. Beautiful!

  2. Amy, those are absolutely the most beautiful roses I have ever seen on a cake! So realistic and perfect.
