I don't normally start a thread for my cake, but I was just so happy with it, I thought I should.

I took the cake shape idea from one of collettes cakes:

I bought the Nicholas Lodge Gumpaste gardenia and peony dvd, watched it 2 times and then made gardenias for the first time! Had some gumpaste roses, made the leaves.

I attended the wedding as well, so I was able to stand near the cake and hear people talking about it. And then sometimes talk to them about it. I felt like a proud mom icon_smile.gif Thanks for looking.

Great job...I just looked at the pic. And a nice story too! I want to do the same thing every time I make a cake. Sometimes it's just "bride ordered from e-mail, I made cake, delivered cake, end of story." How boring! Lol.....again, great job, it is soooo pretty! And awesome fondant work as well! icon_smile.gificon_smile.gif

Your cake is gorgeous. Aren't Nick's DVD's great? I was lucky enough to take his Exotic & Tropical Flowers in Austin last month. Now I'm trying to save enough money for a week in Atlanta. icon_smile.gif

Like I said on your pic comment, you nailed it! It is sooooo pretty. I love when people post their pics on the forum because sometimes I dont get to the galleries to look.
