I can make whatever I want, sheetcake, tiered, cupcake tower. I am leaning toward the last two, but I can't think of anything. Here is her email to me
=========================================
I enjoyed reviewing your website.

Would I be imposing on you to ask if you could use your artist license to create a cake. If you do not care to, let me know and I will decide, but I do like to give creative people a chance to shine.

I would like the glutenfree chocolate with raspberry filling and almond
buttercream icing for 35 to 40 people.

Sarah's flowers are hydrangeas with purple roses. They are a deep purple rather
than a light color, but I am not so concerned about matching exactly.

Peace,
Patti=====================

Does anyone have any ideas? I honestly don't know where to start icon_sad.gif
Thanks in Advance icon_wink.gif

I did a purple cake with green thin stripes that turned out nice. It's in my galleries. It was really easy to do. I used a clay gun to make the stripes/strings. You could do an adaptation of something like that.

Karensue, how do you view your pictures in the gallery? I've never done that before. I have the same request for a bridal shower next Thursday.

How about pale green cupcakes iced smooth with a purple buttercream rose in the center with darker green leaves coming out??

Just a thought....

She decided on a cupcake tower and icing them green is a great idea... I knew I was going to put a rose on each one, but I can't decide what I wan't to make them out of. I need 36 roses for the cuppies, and I want to load up the top of the 6" cake with roses too. I'm think royal because I can start ahead of time, but I would prefer BC because it tastes better. Any thoughts on this??

Couldn't you make the roses from buttercream and freeze them? No fading colors or melting that way.

I'm not sure, do they freeze well?

I made sweet peas and roses for my brother's wedding cake. I let them air dry first and then froze them. They seemed fine. None of the color bled into the whipped cream frosting on the cake, which is what I was worried about. You can see pictures of it in my photos. It's the three tier with the heart topper.

I did this for graduation last year. Everyone raved about the colors.

You don't have to freeze the buttercream roses, just let them air dry. They dry on the outside and the inside stays soft. You can leave these flowers out for at least a week and they look just like when you first made them.
