Sugar flowers are a beautiful way to dress any cake. Calla Lilys are one of the easiest to make, yet make a simple and effective style statement. The key is to maintain the right thickness of the paste and focus tremendously on the neatness of every step, and hence the over all result. Because of the simplicity of its design, it is important that the petals are neatly cut and folded cleanly. In the following sugar calla lily tutorial, I have demonstrated the process step by step in pictures. Hope it  helps! Tools and Materials:

STEP 1, 2, 3: Cut, Frill, Texture

Cut out petals using a lily petal cutter. Gently frill edges with a small rolling pin. Instead of using any fancy veneers or tools, I used a dry paint brush to add texture to the petals. Steps photographed below:
