My sister is doing a sugarcraft flower making course. Apparently it's very popular and even held on a weekday morning, places are difficult to come by.
The results are fascinating. After 4 weeks we have daisies. Before this there was another flower that could have been real, not sugar. The delicacy with which the material can be worked fascinates me, as does the gentle colouring at the tips of the petals.
Best of all, the results are edible. Perhaps I'm in the wrong hobby.
