Perfect Pair ( Flower Arrangements) recipe - How to make Perfect Pair ( Flower Arrangements)
Preparation Time:    Cooking Time: Total Time:
Makes 1 cake stand
thin cotton cloth
3 foam pieces
agapanthus purple flowers
roots of banyan tree
few stems of green variegated ivy
- Rub the green apples with a clean thin cotton cloth so as to bring out their natural shine. Place 3 pieces off foam that are well soaked in water on a flat tray or any cane base as shown in the picture.
- Piling the foam this way will not only help the arrangement to gain height but will also give it stability.
- Cut the agapanthus stem short and arrange them in the foam going shorter than a row of apples giving it a circular formation.
- A bit of foam might be visible after putting in the agapanthus. To give it a little natural and wild look, take roots of a banyan tree or some malleable twigs and twist them round the arrangement and above the agapanthus.
- Intersperse the twigs with a few stems of the green variegated ivy to give it a softer look. Any other type of greens that have small eaves will also do. Avoid any large and strong green leaves, as they would disturb the formation.
- Place the berry cake on a platter ( slightly larger than the diameter of the cake) on the foam and you have an incredible centerpiece ready.
- Making the berry cake is easy. Buy ready-made vanilla sponge from your local baker. Slice it into 3 pieces, horizontally. Sprinkle some sugar syrup to moisten the cake and intersperse it with freshly whipped cream and berries.
- We have put the cream and berries only in the centre of the cake. This not only gives the cake a homemade look but it also gives it a smoother, neater finish and makes the finishing touch easier.
