A sensational centrepiece. Don’t be put off if making sugar roses and fruits is not for you. Exquisite ribbons, feathers, flowers, butterflies and birds can be found easily: go and raid the local haberdasher’s. Then you only have to bake the cake, cover it and the board with sugarpaste and decorate! The roses can be made with sugarpaste, which is easier to handle than petal paste (see suppliers), though the petals will be less fine.
