My Dogwood

My son died when he was 15 and he used to go out in the woods every spring to cut dogwood for my mom. That is the main reason we want to use it for my daughter's wedding cake. Have a little bit of Josh there!

I appreciate all your kind words. I have spent a lot of time on the dogwood, but couldn't have made them without the veiner set from Sunflower. I got it from Sugarcraft, Inc. After the blossoms were dry, I used white petal dust on the entire flower and then put a mixture of one part plum to two parts cinnamon petal dust for the "blood". The centers I pushed through nylon net and "painted" with yellow petal dust with juniper green tips. I can't take credit, it just takes practice.
