Oh Sugar, sugar . . . . . . honey, honey

As a stylist I carry some very interesting things in my kit bag, or should I say kit car. I always have flower equipment, wires, oasis and vases. Dusting powders, flour, oils, decanters and fake fruit. Kitchen implements, baskets, bowls, vases, scissors, skewers, and fine water spray bottles. Soft sheer fabrics, chintz fabrics, old linen fabrics and muslin. Rope, strings and ribbons, antique cutlery and old wooden boards, old papers and sheet music. One of my must have in my kit bag is a big bag of white sugar and spray glue.

These are few of my styled images where I have worked with sugar and sprinkled away. The apples I built up with little toothpicks holding each apple tightly together. I put little white freesias in between and then added some glue and sprinkled the sugar on the tips of the apples. Obviously if you were going to eat the apples you would use egg white or honey. This was for display only and was part of my entertaining ideas.

I sugared the wide silk ribbon as well as the cake,

I sugared some beautiful brown pears for a banquet display

I should have sugared the flowers as well, imagine how pretty that would look.
