Are they Real??
My buddy Mr. Gum Paste Joel (the same one who went to the botanical gardens with me) made this beautiful dahlia for me.. He made it out of sugar.. It is a gum paste flower. I am honored he would do something like this for me.. It takes a lot of time and patience to make these. He also does cakes that are amazing as well. My boys and hubby thought it was real, when they first saw it.. One thing I wasn't prepared for, it was heavy!! Very top heavy, thus why it is lying down.. Fun fact, I brought it home in a tissue supplied box and belted it my youngest car set, so I wouldn't break it..
