Instructions and Tips for Use
For cake decoration other pastes may be used but I find Squires Sugar Florist Paste (SFP) to be the best as it is designed with sugarcraft flowers in mind.
Roll out your paste thinly on a non-stick board.
Very lightly dust the top surface of your paste with Cornflour (cornstarch) a tip here is to put the flour into a muslin cloth and simply wipe across the top surface – that way you don’t get too much onto the paste.
Cut out the Primrose shapes and use to decorate your cakes and cupcakes.
For wired sugar Primroses it is best to use the 'Mexican Hat' method. The celboards and Celpads have useful dips to make this so much easier!
Insert Hamilworth wires, with a slightly hooked end through the centre of the flower and leave to dry.
The paste can be coloured before cutting out, and/or painted or dusted with powder colours when dry.
For extra lifelike flowers thin the petal edges with a ball or dog bone tool to give a slight frill.
