Blue hydrangea flowers

I have often looked at the beautiful sugar flowers made by the very talented Jacqueline Butler of Petalsweet.  In particular I just love the hydrangeas she makes.  So finally I’ve had a go at making them.

Just to make it even more difficult I made these completely edible so no wire used – this did make it hard to arrange them closely.

The cake was a fruit cake made by my neighbour, who is a great cake baker but was looking for someone else to ice and decorate it.
