Crepe paper flower for cakes inspired by Martha Stewart

I was pretty surprised to see crepe paper flowers used by Martha Stewart on fondant covered wedding cakes! See the following picture:

Now I was really inspired by the new crepe paper peonies I made to turn them into flowers for cakes.It's something I am looking into especially when brides would like to cut costs in this economy.

Some flowers on top and graduating down would look gorgeous!

Paper Flowers Peonies for weddings and cakes as toppers

I was making this order for Abby - 20 hot pink peonies.They have come out really well.With the economy in such a turmoil and brides trying to cut costs these flowers could very well replace the expensive cake flowers that are available.

What a gorgeous cake it would be with the topper of paper peonies.

Wedding paper flower bouquet for Desiree of dahlias,dogwoods and cyclamen

The wedding paper flower bouquet I made for Desiree is complete.The bouquet looks soo real that if Desiree does not tell anyone it's paper many people are going to get fooled by the flowers!

I made the paper flower bouquet with burgundy dahlias and hand shaded plum dahlias.The bridesmaids hold hand shaded calla lilies with DECO clay dogwoods and cyclamens.

I finished off all the bouquets with burgundy ribbon and added a button to the bow to add a bit of 'wow' factor:-)

She requested a red poppy for the groom as he is a soldier (who served in Iraq!!!) so I created it in DECO clay.Added a bit of feathers and a Velvet leaves.The 3 ushers have a orange blossom boutonniere as in DECO Clay! They turned out sooo beautiful and real.

handmade wedding bouquet dahlia and doogwood in burgundy and plum

I was trying get my bridal wedding bouquet done and here are the pictures! The wedding bouquet has burgundy dahlia and plum dahlia also which turned out really good.At first I just wasn't satisfied with how it looked as I wanted to "hit this one out of box" as it's a combination rarely requested! After fretting and praying about it I think I got it right when I added the plum accents.

more coming ,lots to done,I am already behind schedule! My little daughter (3 yrs)has been upto mischief and has a big laceration after being cut on broken glass :-( on the hand so things are going slow here!!
