This is a great tutorial on how to make your own sugar paste orchids. Originally posted on YouTube by The Food Court. They have dozens of others how to videos posted on YouTube and their own site. Would I want to do this for my own wedding? Nope! But it does give you an idea of just why your cake costs as much as it does. Thought it would be fun to try though, when things aren't quite as hectic as in the middle of bridal planning. If you're a whiz at crafting and cooking you might be able to pull this off, but I recommend practice, lots of practice!
