This woman was reluctantly moving from CO to Tx so wanted a cake to show that. That is her being dragged by the TX lone star to the state, clawing her wayto to try to stay. It was tough design for me but I am happy with it. I think she was too. I was going to make surrounding states as the background but didnt like how it looked so I started to remove it and ended up liking the look of the smeared background and kept it instead of doing a solid color. The flowers are the 2 state flowers.
