On Saturday 1st October 2011 I attended my first ever sugarcraft class. This is something I have wanted to try for ages, but the initial outlay for materials and equipment seemed rather steep for me to just try it out so I thought this would be a good way of seeing if a. I liked it and b. if I could actually do it!
You may recall that this particular Saturday was unseasonably hot. As a consequence of that the sugar paste was drying out far too quickly which made it very difficult to manipulate successfully. I felt sorry for our tutor as she was really struggling to get round us all before all our paste was drying. However, before the day was over I managed to create this:
For a first attempt I am very proud of my Christmas rose and mistletoe. Unfortunately the holly berries have cracked and keep dropping off! I really enjoyed making this decoration and would love to have another go when the weather is cooler.
Thank you for looking.
