That pic is simply a sphere (could be a cake, but it could also be styrofoam) covered in hydrangeas.

 

Cover first in fondant which will match the colour of the flowers.

 

Don't let the gumpaste flowers fully dry before attaching (I'd use royal icing - that's my 'glue' of choice).

 

Start at the very top, then simply work  your way round.

 

I've done something similar, with small plunger blossoms (I used styrofoam as it's not easy to get a perfect sphere when it's all cake.  Alternatively, you can use a styrofoam semi-sphere for the bottom half and then a half ball of cake for the top).
