It took a couple of weeks to make all of these flowers, since they had to dry in between steps. This was my first basket cake and first time to make all of these flowers! They are all made of royal icing. Most are on bases with wires. After the bases were dried and the flowers were dried, I then attached them together with more royal icing. After that was dry I handpainted them with Wilton paste colors (some are still tacky, so maybe this wasn't the best method). Basketweave is lemon buttercream.
