Blush Pink Anemone Cake Flowers

I love doing cake flowers and it seems to be my trend for the last few weeks, cake decor for weddings and events. I just finished 6 all white peonies each 4.5" in diameter which I will blog about soon, but the one I wanted to share was of my blush pink anemone cake flowers. I love these anemone flowers, especially the blush pink with the dark contrasting black center. Striking yet so delicate! Sara came to me via my Etsy site after seeing some of my anemone flower designs. She sent me an image of the cake that inspired her and this is the end result in clay form.
I've been playing around with my techniques and I have to say I'm liking my new secret tool more and more. Can't tell you what it is, but needless to say, it gives me some really great texture on my petals. Great find.... LOL!
Cake flowers are a nice change up from all the bouquets I've been working on, but as soon as I finish the last of these cake flowers, I have a lot of big orders behind it for lots of flowers, printed items and more. It's going to be a stressful but very fun filled month as I try to get all my orders done before we finally take our family vacation! It's been an entire year since our last one and I'm overdue. Working non-stop for over a year has been tiring and I need 10 days to just be a mom, a wife and spend time with loved ones we haven't seen since last year and relax on the beach! So excited! I'll be throwing in a little bit of work, but not much. I don't think I can truly ever walk away from my business 100%. LOL.

Sara's wedding isn't until October, but I told her I would get these to her before I left for my vacation so it's at least one thing she can get done early and mark off on her "to do" list! Congratulations Sara and I hope you'll share photos after your wedding!
