Birthday cake for a little girl that echoes her birthday outfit. Flower cut out of gumpaste, dried and hand painted. Fondant top tier on top strawberry cake, BC bottom on lemon cake w/fondant extras.Was a bit rushed due to another cake due the same day. Wasn't happy with my swirls as I hand cut them and needed a cutter. One of the side swirls broke and my initials didn't go together like I wanted. We learn more on every cake!!
