I'm a total newbie. So please excuse the questions.
I decorated my brothers wedding cake a couple of months ago - it was my first ever cake decoration so was pretty nerve racking. My best friend is now getting married and has asked me to decorate her cake. My brothers cake was roses and orchids all peachy cream and whites, so I didn't have to worry about colouring my flowers and they didn't want any wire used at all.
My friend wants very colourful realistic flowers that trail on her cake so I would love some advice.
What is the difference in finish to either airbrush the flower or using petal dust then steaming?
Are you able to tell me what the difference to the techniques used for these two flowers might be? The first looks very soft and velvety (the look i am going for) and the second looks very glossy (a look my friend doesn't want).- I have read that the petal dust gets a sheen is the rose picture what that looks like?
What would you think is the best way to get the first flower look.
And lastly - I read somewhere that the tape contains latex. I know the bride is allergic do you think flowers sitting on the cake would be harmful? Is there an alternative tape to use?
Thank you all for your help
I look forward to being a member of this forum and getting to know you all.
