Jacqueline Butler of Petalsweet gives us the scoop on her lovely sugar flowers:

“Of course I absolutely love this time of year because of all of the spring flowers…and the green and white color palette is just so fresh, I find I’m drawn to it over and over again. Sometimes I’ll add another spot of color, but I think the green and white is a great combination of clean and simple, as well as modern and sophisticated. There are no additional details on the cake (other than the grosgrain ribbon) to allow the flowers to truly be the main focus. The ranunculus continues to be a favorite flower with my clients and students, and I really love them with the white petals surrounding the pop of green in the center. I like to create full and lush looking arrangements even if they are on a small cake, so I’m also using my signature hydrangea and filler flowers along with small buds and some glossy leaves to fill around the main flowers. Happy Spring!”
