What could be more festive than a red poinsettia spray?

I promised in November I would create a video on how I created my realistic poinsettias, with Christmas Eve 7 days away this is

the perfect time.

Poinsettias have become a staple during the holiday season,

the plant is sold every year, and most homes have a few.

It has become a family tradition to design a special cake that represents the season.

The poinsettias above will adorn our christmas cake this year.

I find if you dust your bracts and centre while still pliable the colour pops and has depth.

Although I chose red, white poinsettias are an elegant choice!

Once the paste has dried completely steam your poinsettias.

Watch the video below to see how I created the poinsettias.

Once you have poinsettias made you can save them for the next year.

Wrap in foam and place in an box.
