Had a few orders for Oriental Lilies and I've finished a few here. They are very easy to make but there are a lot of details to consider. I've had to take green dust and rub it on a length of white tape so I can wrap it around a wire for the "pistil". Then I mixed pumpkin orange royal icing and hand dipped each of 6 wires to make the stamens. After that, I cut out petals, run them on wire, and leave them out to dry. Once all the prepping is finished, the magic happens. With just a bit of florist tape, the whole flower unfurls. It takes my breath away every time.
Then the heartache sets in when I think about how I should ship these.
