Perfect Peony By Greg Cleary of Sweetums Designer Cakes This is a quick, very showy flower that has loads of impact with little effort required. It fills space quickly and does not need a lot of other accompanying flowers as it stands alone as a beauty. It’s that old ‘less is more’ motto. You will need: Materials • White wire (20, 26 & 28 gauge) • Peony leaf veiner or dresden tool • Flower paste • Petal cutters (two graduating sizes) • Florist tape • Peony leaf cutters • Dental floss • Peony petal veiner and veining tool • Stamens • Balling tool • Wire cutters • Petal pad
