I’m calling this blog post series #Shortcuts because I’m spilling all the juicy secrets about how I can make so many Sugar Flowers so quickly.
I’ve been learning and making Sugar Flowers since high school (hi, I’m 31 now 👋🏼) and I’m all about the shortcuts that makes things easier, not the shortcuts that make things crappier.
Let’s kick things off with my neurodivergent-friendly way to count petals without getting sidetracked thinking about illegal unpasteurized Brie or milk frothers and having to start counting all over again.
When I’m making a ton of Sugar Flowers at once, I have a lot of petals to count. The problem is when I lose count and have to start counting all over again. 😭 It’s frustrating and I do not have time for this.
Now what I do before starting a big project is to count out all my floral wires first, then I know when I run out of wire that I’ve made enough petals!
