My friend's hubby ordered this cake for her birthday which happens to fall close to Mother's Day, so this cake is doing double duty.
I had wanted to try out a buttercream technique that I had seen on MyCakeSchool.com and I was also shooting for an ombre look to the tiers. The hydrangea and lilacs are flowers I made while taking Jacqueline Butler's online flower course. As you can see by the number of pics I'm posting, I'm really proud of the flowers. :)
