Did this mini 3 tier for my daughters friend who was 18 last month. The silver ribbon in the center tier is of gum paste with lace texture. All the silver items are painted with silver luster dust. The blossoms are painted with rose luster dust. The "diamonds" are craft rhinestones and the topper is gum paste I did free hand, you can kind of tell. I only had 1 days notice to do this cake. She loved it!!
