If these beautiful blooms look good enough to eat...that’s because they are. Award-winning artist Michelle Nguyen creates ultra-realistic flowers from sugar. Melbourne-based Michelle started as a business student before taking an interest in books at the library which illustrated wildlife and flowers, which she would sketch. After being influenced by wedding magazines depicting cakes adorned with sugar flowers, Michelle decided to take a course before gaining confidence to enter sugar flower competitions. She now runs Michelle’s sweet blossom, teaching private classes locally and abroad for international workshops. Michelle says: "The main principle is to have eyes for detail and a lot of patience. My preferred flowers to create are dahlias and peonies. However, my specialities are roses."
