Lily's Wedding Cake

The bride sent me a picture from a magazine, asked me to do exactly the same cake, and to make it "spectacular". At the beginning she wanted the basis to measure 60*60!!!! cm. In the end we settled for a cake measuring 40*40 cm, with the rest of the tiers measuring 30*30 and 20*20. Rolled fondant and gum paste flowers.

Answers to the questions by beesting: the flowers are gumpaste, colored with just a touch of Americolor's "gold". The dusting inside is red and yellow (I did not have orange dust). The shine of the leaves is edible varnish, diluted 50:50 with edible alcohol or vodka. I just dip the leaves and then stick them upright on a florist sponge to dry.
