...and a hug around the neck. Bottom tier(s?) is 1-10" and 4-12" layers, top tier is 3-7" layers. Carved. Finished with fondant vertical strips and horizontal bands. Airbrushed accents. Leaves and large flowers are fondant/gumpaste and small flowers and pinecones are royal icing. Thanks to KimAZ and others for sharing their creations that inspired me.
