Saturday Sept 30.  They were not perfect, but I was very pleased with
how they turned out, considering it was my first time working with

Nice. I particularly like your shading on the flowers. I didn't  
realize that the bowl in the fourth photograph was out of sugarpaste  
until I saw your later photos and comments.

You mentioned that the large bowl broke when you removed it from the  
mold, yet another picture shows the large bowl with flowers for the  
head table. Is that the same bowl? If so, how did you fix it?

Did your flowers slump? Or were they flattened? The flowers look  
somewhat flattened or squashed in the first three pictures, but they  
may simply be the camera angle.

Did you do something to keep the sugarpaste from sticking to the molds?
