I wanted to say thank you to sooooo many CC'rs who helped me with the inspiration for this cake. Thanks for all the pics, links & tutorials

My friend wanted a blue/brown cake w/vintage style flowers for a bridal shower and gave me total creative license (which we all know is a double-edged sword)

Here is the result:

LOVE it!!

How did you make the blue flowers? Are they just a leaf sorta shape with the ends pinched together?

AWatterson has a tutorial here on CC. You use the petal cutter--thin the cut-out down and then pinch the ends. The indvidual petals are "glued" down to a base circle starting at the outer edge, working in to the middle. They are easy to do, just a little time-consuming until you get a rythmn.

I covered a cake board with fabric and sealed it with Mod Podge (decopage medium). The MP is listed as non-toxic and it seals the fabric with a hard, clear coat. I still put the cake on its own cardboard cut to size.

Great job! Once you get the flower down it will only take about 10-15 minutes to make.
