Paul talks us through the design and how he plans to bring it all together. It’s useful to know how ideas are formed and what inspires someone like Paul. He has already covered the cakes but fear not… you can learn how to cover and stack your cakes by watching this video.
Making the silhouettes
Paul shows us how to get the best results when working with the cake lace moulds. He then creates all the silhouettes that will be used for this design.
Making the flowers and adding the grass
Paul makes the adorable flowers using plunger cutters and shows us how to add a little extra life to them. He then demonstrates how to carefully apply the thin layers of grass to the cake.
Adding the grass and the couple
In this lesson, Paul adds the silhouette of the couple to cake, as well as the rest of the grass.
Adding the flowers
Now the flowers have had a chance to dry, it’s time to add them to the cake.
Paul finishes the cake, adding some detail to the flowers, as well as a little extra decoration to add some more dimension to the cake.
