This was my first wedding cake for two of my dear, dear friends. The bride asked for a plain buttercream cake with flowers to match her decor. For this one, I taught myself to make all of those flowers. Lots of trial and error yielded a few plumerias, hibiscus, and miscellaneous filler flowers. During transport, the filling began to bulge and I had to add more flowers than I had originally wanted just to make it look right. Lesson learned: all outdoor weddings get fondant cakes.
