This cake was iced in Mouselline Buttercream (from "The Cake Bible") flavored with Kahlua. I didn't care for the ivory frosting against the stark white pillars though, but I didn't think about that until I was setting the cake up. The sizes were 14", 10" and 6". The flowers were supposed to be all red roses, but the florist threw in a surprise, but I liked the end result.

So gorgeous! It looks so smooth and the colors are really fantastic. I would have never paid attention to the white pillars.

are those roses wrapped in something or do they have spikes or are they organic...Just wondering about placing fresh flowers on a cake and wonder what is the most common procedure when doing this.

Jennifer 293-The ones on the side had a large silk flower leaf glued to the bottom of the arrangement and the one on top was arranged in a dome, so only the plastic on the bottom of the dome touched the cake. I don't know if the flowers were organic, but the florist knew they were for a cake.

this is just beautiful! I agree about the pillars; I don't like the wilton pillars at all. I say, just hide them with the beautiful roses! Your cake looks amazing, though
