Cascading Flowers on Becca's Birthday Cake
Wednesday I started making flowers and was surprised how much I had forgotten!! We really love the look of gum paste flowers, and have focused on them so much more in the past year and a half! Reading through the Wilton book, I realized our instructor a few years ago actually taught us to make the daisy wrong. After a few experiments and a lot of time (I was still making flowers late on Thursday night) I figured them out!!
Friday morning I had a hard time figuring out how to put them on for some reason. Whether I was tired, or just not in an artistic mood, who knows. Becca came through and said she wanted them to cascade... so I cascaded them on one side, and threw others on at various places.
She was happy with the cake and was the one who took pictures for me, since I had to finish getting ready to run to church to clean. It is definitely so rich, I couldn't even eat a whole piece at one time!!
Happy Birthday my sweet Rebecca Cain!!
