Amy: Hi, I’m Amy Noel, owner of Sugar Flower Cake Shop in New York City. I teach the online course, “Modern Elegant Sugar Flowers,” where I show cake decorators how to create beautiful sugar flowers that are featured on wedding and other specialty cakes. It’s an extended version of a class that I’ve taught in Martha Stewart’s test kitchen. If you’re serious about making sugar flowers that look like the real thing you want to check out my online course. In this video I’ll show you how to make sugar berries for your sugar flower arrangements. In order to make brunia berries, I need a teeny tiny little bit of gum paste. I just have a little bit.
When you’re making berries, we’re going to be making a collection of just little balls of gum paste on a wire. Now the wire though, I’ve bent over the top of my wire so it looks like the eye of a needle. That’s going to make sure that the gum paste sticks. When I go to make my berry I want a tiny bit of gum paste. I’d say that most beginner sugar flower makers tend to use too much gum paste, so take what you have and probably split it in half, and that will be maybe the right size. If you need to you can always just pinch off even a little bit more. I’m rolling that in my hand just around to make a nice smooth ball. Dip the hooked end of my wire into my edible glue and brush off the extra on the back of my hand. I like to hold my little berry in my hand. I try not to hold it between my fingers. I find that if I hold it between my fingers my berry just gets squished, but if I hold it in my hand I can just insert the wire carefully into the berry. I want to push the wire in far enough so that the hook part starts to disappear but not so far that it starts to pop out on the other side.
From there I can just pinch the hole closed that I made with the wire and just make sure that I come back to a nice round shape. Pinching and pushing and pressing just a little bit, round and round and round, and that will make a nice round shape. Each of my berries is going to have to dry overnight before I can add the pollen on the outside. With the first day that I’m working on berries I’ll do a whole bunch of these, we might even do a 100 at a time. Since these need to dry overnight on my first day of making berries I’ll make a whole bunch of different berries. As you’re making your berries you really want to vary the size of your berries. I think it makes your spray look a bit more realistic.
Some of them might be a little bit bigger and also make sure to make a couple of teeny tiny ones. Almost like they’re little tiny buds but just take a look and make sure you have a variety of sizes so that your arrangements look more realistic. There I’ve made six berries and this remember would be just enough for one spray, but these are going to need to dry overnight before we go to put our pollen on top. I’m just going to move this out of my way until I want to mix up my pollen. Now when I go to mix my pollen I’m calling it pollen, but it’s really not pollen it’s just sugar. I’m using a natural cane sugar but you can use a white sugar or whatever kind of sugar you have. I’m going to add a little bit of petal dust to my sugar to get the color that I want.
Brunia berries have a little bit of a gray tone and they’re also, I think, a little bit sparkly so I have some super pearl and also some charcoal petal dust. I’m just going to add a little bit of that into my sugar and just mix it up. This part is going to make it a little bit more gray with the charcoal and then by adding the super pearl it’s going to make it a little sparkly as well. You can decide how much or how little you want. You’ll just mix it up and you’ll see what the color looks like. I think I’m going to make mine a little bit more gray so add just a little more charcoal petal dust. I think that will work. Now these berries on my left have dried overnight and they’re now rock hard, you can hear that. I’m going to take my berry and dip it into, completely submerge it, into my edible glue. That means I’m going to get the whole entire thing wet. Even maybe a little bit of the top of the wire.
You want to roll it around. I roll the piece through between my fingers, roll the wire between my fingers to make sure that all of the piece is completely covered. Then I have one of my brunia berries. I’m going to repeat that with all of the different berries. This is such a super easy process. If you wanted to instead of making a bru
