We celebrated mother's day 2 weeks early as my brother was going away for 6 weeks and would miss it. My mom and grandma were in love with this cake and that's the best thing you can hope for!

Absolutely beautiful!! What color is that green??? ;-D
The fondant is actually a light shade of yellow, the green is a mix of spring greeen and lime green

Thanks so much everyone! It tasted yummy as well. Top was a chocolate cake with vanilla IMBC and bottom was an orange vanilla cake with mango passionfruit IMBC
this cake is a work of art.............it looks like it could have come straight from a cake designer!!!!! Awesome job!!!!!
Thanks KHalstead. I studied with the top Toronto cake designer and I'm a perfectionist at heart!
this is a very beautiful cak congratulations. I am hoping to be this good soon. I have just started decorating cakes and my goal is to do wedding cakes.
this cake is the bomb great job
Beautiful cake!! How did you do the borders around the tops of the tiers?
Thanks! The borders around the top are crimped, you have to do it as soon as you cover the cake in fondnat otherwise the fondant will crack. You can practice on a pice of fondant to get the hand of it!
Thanks so much! It's been just over a year since my first course. I got to study with a top cake designer, I learned so much from her that cakes like that are pure pleasure!
Congradulations on the win. You have put alot of detail into this cake. It is very beautiful.
this cake is beautiful, all the cake is beautiful.
Thank you Lindalee! I truly enjoyed it and my mom and grandma were so surprised.
this is gorgeous cake! the colors are beautiful .
beautiful! Was it hard to cover the petal pan with fondant? It looks flawless
Thanks so much! the petal pan was harder to cover with buttercream than a round tier but to cover with fondant is pretty much the same. The only difference is that you can smooth a round tier easier tha a petal but with practice it becomes easier. I torture my family by only bringing fondnat covered cakes as practice, no matter how small they don't get any cakes coverd in just buttercream!
I think this cake is beautiful! I love the shape of the bottom layer! I love the flowers too! Gorgeous!
this cake is absoluteli beautiful love it
Wow this is so beautiful!!! How did you make the flowers?
WOW, this is the most beautiful cake I've ever seen!! Without reading that it was dedicated to a mother, I could have guessed it because it looks so tender.
This cake would bring a tear to my late grandmother's eye. Her favorite color was lavender. Your cake design is sophisticated, timeless, elegant, and feminine. The little details around the borders are well-executed and charming. Love it, love, love it! Congrats
Thank you so much! It was for last years mother's day (for my mom and grandma). I hosted it to make sure they didn't have to cook (for once). They really loved the cake, my grandma took the vase home. Seeing the joy in their eyes is the best thing!
Esta precioso felicidades
Thats just beautiful!
Beautiful work! I an inspired by you to create a wonderful cake for Mother's Day this year! We are having a large group of Moms for our special day so I need to make a cake to feed 20. Were the flower cake pans you used 8 and 10 inch? I can't seem to find them large enough. Thanks for any info!
Thanks! I love my crimpers and I used to be so scared to use them! As long as your fondant is not too thin the crimping doesn't hurt it. Also, crimp on fresh fondnat, just after you put it on the cake, don't wait till you stack it! The flowers were made in a silicone mold (doublesided), I let them dry than painted them wet with a shiny purple dust and lemon extract mix. Than the green cenres were piped on. I think the sizes were a 6" round and a 9" petal? I think that's what Wilton petal pans...
This is so beautiful and perfectly flawless. And you crimped the edges too! I've been wanting to try a crimper, I love the affect it gives. This is just a wonderful cake. One of THE prettiestcakes I've ever seen.
ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!! This cake makes a statement. How did you make the vase?
It's a sugar vase that I covered in fondant to match the cake
