Mary Corbett's Needle & Thread arrives in my e-mail inbox every day. She asked the question: "Do you have other crafts and hobbies that you pursue, in addition to embroidery?". Yes I do, my other wonderful hobby is cake decorating, especially making sugar flowers. Here's examples of some that I have made.
|Here are sugar calla lilies, and underneath calla lilies in stumpwork|
|These are sugar hydrangeas|
|And here and below are stumpwork hydrangeas|
|This is a sugar cherry blossom tree|
|A silk ribbon rose tree|
|A sugar wild rose, or briar rose|
|And a silk ribbon rose|
|These are sugar hybrid tea roses|
|And these are ribbon roses|
|And finally some sugar pansies just waiting to be included in a spray for a cake.|
|Silk ribbon pansies|
One thing I realize is that I love flowers - sugar, silk and real!
