Sorry, this has probably been done to death but I couldn't find anything in the search...

I'm starting, very timidly, to do sugarcraft flowers and would like to buy some florist paste to practice with between my course nights. Eventually I want to get a book and have a go at some different designs on my own. Where's the cheapest to buy florist paste in the UK?

From the online UK suppliers I have saved to my favourites these seem to be cheapest if you want 200g packets

Except for white 200g and these are also cheapest for 100g packs
http://design-a-cake.co.uk/default.asp

Most of these are only 100g

And unless I am reading it wrong all of these are £4.10 for only 100g where you will get 200g for £4.15 at CCCshop?!

I'm sure some of the others will have more to add.

I use these, and if your order is over £60 then its free shipping.

Thanks, I'll check them out. Wonder if I could make some practice ones with rolled icing? I'm guessing you can't get it as thin as you need - but how do you make edible flowers?
