Carla And Paul's Brush Embroidery Wedding Cake With Iris Topper

This was my first time to do a wedding cake. I did it as a favor to help out a lady at my husband's work. It turned out pretty, but there were some crumbs in the icing that I didn't notice until it was too late. I don't think they stood out to anyone else, though. I made the topper out of gumpaste and put super pearl and super gold dusts on it. All I see are the flaws when I look at it, but the ladies at the reception site thought it was gorgeous, so that made me feel better.

Thanks for the compliments. Yes, I made a light impression in the buttercream with a cutter, piped over the impression, and (with a light hand) pulled the icing inward using a damp brush.
