I am attempting to recreat a cake that was in the 50 best wedding cakes featured a few months ago in Bride. ( I think that is where it was). The cake will be white with green orchids. 16 inch, 12 inch, and 8 inch square. My problem is the vines. They are very faint. I was wondering if someone could give me an abstract drawing, or something. I am not an artist and I am seriously concerned. Most of you will think that is easy. But for me. . . . ..
This is for my daugther's reception. The wedding was in Jamaica, and a blast!

Thanks for any and all assistance

If you can, pipe them in royal icing, if the cakes are covered in fondant. If its buttercream, you do it in buttercream.
