How To Make Stunning Purple Sugar Vanda Orchids

With Sue McMahon

Difficulty Medium

Broken Video?

Join Sue and learn how to make these stunning deep purple vanda sugar orchids created all from one mould in this fantastic quick tutorial. Be inspired and watch how Sue demonstrates step by step on how to use the mould paired with a sizing guide, a companion tool and veining mat to make and vein the petals, the sepal, the column, and the buds. You will then learn how to add edible paint and a glitter spritz to create a more dramatic colouring to the flowers, and finally shown how to wire them all into an arranged natural looking spray. The purple vanda orchid symbolises wealth, royalty, and admiration which are the perfect addition to any arrangement of sugar flowers displayed on the top of a cake or simply placed in a vase.
