Nana's 80th Birthday Cake

My dear friend and loyal client Cat asked me to make a cake for her Nana's 80th birthday.  I was honored!  It was for a small family party, so nothing too crazy, and not too big.  I was given artistic license to do whatever design I felt at the time.  This makes me tense sometimes, but I knew where to go with this one!

The cake was chocolate and icing was vanilla buttercream (one of Cat's favorite combo's).  It was covered in white fondant.  Accented with light pink fondant Apple Blossoms and Roses and the writing and side swirling was done with lilac buttercream.

I can't wait to hear how Nana liked her cake.  I love making those flowers... and will be highlighting some new ones real soon, so as always, stay tuned!
