Mari requested a Garden Party - themed cake for her daughter, Ali's, 1st birthday party. It's a good thing that Mari reserved me about 4 months in advance because it took almost that long to plan and execute this cake! But this was an EXCITING one to make. It put to use ALL of the skills that I teach in my cake decorating classes; buttercream, royal icing, fondant AND gum paste!
The flowers alone took about 5 hours to complete. But I am SO happy with the result. I love this cake.
