• Sugar craft equipment

    As promised, the following is a list of equipment which you will need to make sugar flowers.  My advice is that you buy what you need as a bare minimum and then build on it as you go, especially with regards to cutters and veiners, colours and tints.  As I discovered last night, even buying the basics can soon mount up.

    • Small rolling pin (silicon)
    • Cutters & veiners (I started with rose, blossom and peony)
    • Calyx/star cutter
    • Wire cutters
    • Flower foam pad
    • Petal Veiner / Friller modelling tool
    • Ball tool
    • Non stick veining board
    • General non stick board
    • Flower drying mat/petal former (can use apple tray)
    • Florist paste
    • Food colours and tints
    • Florist wires (22, 24 etc)
    • Florist tape
    • Stamens
    • Edible glue
    • Polystyrene cake dummy (to insert wire flowers when drying and assembling)
    • Trex (to grease board/prevent sugar paste from sticking to boards

    Happy sugar crafting!
