Wafer paper is a versatile and inexpensive product with tonnes of uses in cake decorating. One of my favourite uses in making flowers.
Use a pencil to draw 6 big petals and 6 small petals on a sheet of wafer paper.
The drawings don’t have to be perfect. Otherwise to make it even easier you can purchase our pre printed wafer paper template here.
Note: These days, pencils are non-toxic and many decorators use them in cake decorating. But, if you are uncomfortable using a pencil, you can use scissors to cut out these petal shapes free hand.
Use scissors to cut out these petal shapes.
They don’t have to be cut out perfectly.
Dip your paintbrush in blue dust and color 3 big and 3 small petals blue.
Dip your paintbrush in pink dust and color 3 big and 3 small petals pink.
Outline all the petals with a black edible marker.
Make sure the outline is thick.
Brush very little corn syrup or edible glue at one end of a blue petal and stick a pink petal there.
Continue sticking petals in a circular formation.
Now, brush very little edible glue or corn syrup in the center of the big flower.
Stick a small blue petal here.
Then, stick the pink petal beside it. And keep going until you have a small flower on top of your big flower.
Finally, brush a little corn syrup or edible glue in the center of this flower and stick a big edible pearl or a big white sprinkle here. Let it dry over night before attaching to your cake.
