It isn't a particular flower, just an "exploded" fantasy flower. See this:

I just made one of these cakes for the first time, it is not exactly the same but I had a look at the youtube vids and that was pretty much what I did.  My customer wanted hers coloured in shades of ivory to apricot.  The cake is covered in all butter SMBC.  I made the flower and petals out of modelling choc as it had to sit out for quite a while and I was worried gumpaste petals would wilt. It wasn't too difficult, the hardest thing was placing the shaded colours right, I had to keep walking away and looking at it from a distance.  Give it a go Farmgirl, it was fun!
