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!
