These callas were made for a wedding cake that, unfortunately ( 🙂 ) I’m not making!  A tip for setting the color in your flowers and allowing them to have some shine to them is to LIGHTLY steam them.  I just use my regular old iron, set it on the steam setting, wait for it to heat up and then give them a few little blasts with the steam button…works great!

Two and 21

This was a birthday cake weekend!  The first was a party for a young lady turning 21 and the second was for the cutest little red-head turning 2!  I learned a new trick this week that helps speed up the drying time on gum paste.  If you turn your oven light on, put the item in the oven that you want to dry and close the door, the drying time significantly decreases!  The items on the 21st birthday cake were all done this way.  Just remember, if you use this technique, just make sure EVERYONE that lives with you knows…the smell of burning gum paste is NOT pleasant!  I just left a note for all to see!

What  difference 2 years and some classes makes!  This is the cake I did almost 2 years ago for my nephew’s 1st birthday!
