Cherry Blossoms

Peanut butter cake, raspberry filling, BC icing. Chocolate fondant w/tylose branch, gumpaste cherry blossoms. This cake was a nightmare. The wedding was at the zoo, and I was told I would be able to pull my car to the reception site. Wrong. I had to carry this cake through the China Exhibit, in Memphis, in JUNE. It was hot and humid, and by the time I got to the table the tiers had shifted a little. Nothing I could do at that point - so here it is. I'm also not happy with the branch, it's out of proportion.

Oh yeah, the ribbons are attached to cake charms - each of the bridesmaids is supposed to pull one out - they each mean something different. AND - the cherry blossoms were originally going to be a more natural color, but she decided she wanted them to be hot pink to match her roses so... hot pink is what she got!

The cherry blossoms are gorgeous, so no one will notice the other things. At least there was no edging piping to crack as it shifted! It just looks contemporary & like it was supposed to be that way. Great job!

AWESOME blossoms, I thought they were real at first glance, had to read to know otherwise. Good job.
