Wedding cake flowers

I think I've mentioned in passing that my cousin is getting married here at Birdland on July 3rd.  She is from Vancouver, Canada so her family and friends are all coming down from there.  My parents arrived from England on Monday for a little holiday beforehand, and my sister and her family arrive  next week.  It's going to be a busy time!


 My mum had the task of making some decorations for the wedding cake - and then the worry of transporting them on the plane over from England.  Luckily when she unpacked them last night, she found they were all intact.

I just love them.  They are made of gelatin.  She formed the petal and leaf outlines with fine wire, then dipped each into colored gelatin, let them dry and then wired them together.

I've decided I want the one in the photo below for a corsage for the wedding, as I'm wearing a lemon colored dress!

Don't you think they'd make good jewelry too!!  Great job mum!

I'll try and remember to post a photo of the final adorned cake!
