I really hope someone can help.

I am making a birthday cake for my Great Aunt who is very ill. She loves hummingbirds. I'm at a loss on how to make a classy cake (she is a very classy lady). I was thinking colour flow birds, but not sure how to make them classy looking.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!

Oh I love hummingbirds, and I even bought a hummingbird cookie cutter. I think a cake with lots of flowers, vines and hummingbirds would be beautiful. Although I don't ever use color flow, I do make a lot of royal icing transfers which is basically the same thing. Maybe you could add some butterflies or dragonflies also?

The good thing about the color flow or RIT's is if they are dried hard enough you don't have to lay them flat on the cake. You could stand them up into a flower.

Hummingbirds are pretty! I have a small one on the following cake - it was done with color flow. You could add a second one or even enlarge the one a bit.
It is in my photos here:

. . . sorry to hear your aunt isn't doing well . . .

I too, love hummingbirds . . . here is a chocolate transfer that is lovely . . .

. . . and you could try to do something like a stained glass effect if you like . . .

. . . if you could incorporate something like this . . .

I think you could come up with a very "classy" design . . .
