Last month I bought 3 Alan Dunn's books, but after looking at all those gorgeous flowers I realized they weren't quite suitable for a beginner flower maker like me. So I started with some simple flowers and particularly wanted to try making grass. I've tucked stems in a dummy to let them dry and they looked quite good. It's fondant, gumpaste grass, birds are painted. There is also a heart cloud on the second top tier (barely visible in the photo). Sorry for the photo quality, it looks so great 'live' and so bad in this photo.
