About 3 evenings of making roses and watching Dexter ( I am done with season 2 by the way, and yes, you are getting quite blood-thirsty after about 300 petals :) ).

Here are step-by-step pictures and some quick explanations on how to get the flowers done - just in case someone loves Dexter as well, or may be for the case when I get old and crazy and forget some sugarcraft techniques.

We start with the gumpaste - here is a big chunk of it Gumpaste

I usually don't go superfancy and use the recipe  on the Wilton Gum-Tex box. Keep it covered at all times - dries very fast.

Then we need some wire - I used gauge 24 for the roses, as they are quite heavy - make a little hoop on the top

Wire for the flowers

Cake design is a wild thing. You are thinking it all over, adding details, changing improving, caring about it and all of a sudden it gets out of control, like a whimmy child, and starts its own independent existence, demanding, but fabulous.
My sister's wedding is planned small - about 25 people. 14" one layer cake will serve 25 people. But, really, one layer wedding cake? I don't get it.

I was planning this site inially as an art Gallery. Works in progress, imprimature, art shows and so on. And the first entry was supposed to be art-related. But life is life - my little darling baby-sister is getting married in September. Just let her new life be as wonderful as she dares to dream.

I will start working on some sugarpaste flowers. Step-by-step pictures are coming.
