Just had a question about sugar flowers. My boss is by profession a baker and has hired me as a cake decorator to work on the wedding cakes and the flowers. He is expecting me to produce a full rose in 2 or 3 minutes. As it stands I am able to complete around 30 full sized roses (Layers of 1, 2, 3, 5, 5, and 7 petals) in an 8 hour day, completing other tasks for about 2 of those hours whist my buds dry. So it takes me about 15 to 20 minutes overall per rose.
I just wanted to ask other decorators how long it takes them as I feel like my boss wants to have an elaborate rose in the time it takes to do a simple one.
How long would it normally take you to do a medium to large rose suitable going into a wedding cake arrangement? And how about other flowers?
Thanks so much for all the advice!
