This cake was buttercream icing with royal icing flowers. I did a chinese theme - the thought was to replicate a chinese painting with a plum blossom tree and the word for "spring" on the right. I think I put a few too many "plum blossoms" (actually different coloured forget-me-nots) on the tree because it looks a little cluttered. Next time, I'll space it out a bit more. The next picture is the side view.
