Purity, Innocence, Sympathy, Spirituality.
Continuing to work on the sugar rose, I decided to update a mini cake I had. I'm thinking when the snow stops I'll take a trip outside to take better pics. Until then, I'll be back at it trying to achieve a realistic rose. Although I referenced an actual rose to work from there's still a ways to go. Sometimes I think I'm too meticulous for my own good lol. But I'm obsessed now and I pretty soon, hopefully I'll have a sugar rose garden!Which will come in handy for some cakes!!
Hope you like it! Thanx for looking!
The Blue Rose
Much like its mysterious origin, the blue rose means mystery.
When I'm making cakes for myself or I have to present Darling Confections to people I usually like to stick in the color scheme of pinks, vintage, shabby chic because that's my style. Those are also the colors in my logo, etc. so I generally stick with that.
However, in this instance, I was preparing cakes for a career fair that I was participating in. Latey, I've gone into the color scheme of pink and turquoise, I've even adapted my kitchen and utensils to those colors. So as I was prepping for the event I decided to redo some display cakes I had for show to take along with me. One being my small gift box cake. Rather than touching up the pink or making another in pink I decided to go with blue. (Although I'm a pinkish kinda gal, blue to purple hues are my favorite colors!) I also had black and white in my head and wanted to play off that, so I did and I absolutely love it!
As I worked on this cake, (and in my head this is incomplete lol), I generally accompany this style of cake with a rose. Which you can see a small bud in the pic above. Although blue roses aren't natural, they're so darling! So I decided to work on blue roses.
I fell in love with it so much that my focus now for the next few months or so will be sugar flowers and perfecting the art of the sugar rose. Hopefully I'll have something to post soon, as I've already begun working on them. I'm so fascinated.
Hope you like it!
As an artist I'm fascinated with everything! And I do mean everything! The fresh air, color palettes mostly, flower gardens, diamonds and pearls :D, all things pink, shabby chic, vintage furniture, vintage, buildings....just to name a few lol. I'm a lover of learning, especially regarding DIY projects and good ole Found Object Art (I mean I am an artist). So I'll be sharing also projects I take on in conjunction with caking and maybe we'll have some fun together as I attempt to blog.
