I ordered a tool to make all the little beads around the base of each cake and also in the flower topper. Around a week before I started making the cake, I found out the tool was out of stock and wouldn't be back in stock in time. I ended up hand making all the little beads, which was no easy task, and it also ate into the time I had set aside to hand make all the roses. I wish I had been able to make all the beads the same size and I had a little bit longer just to make the rose posy that little bit more finished. In all fairness, I don't think I did too bad a job and its just me being critical of my own work!
