Cakes and more cakes

My friend Verdie and I worked on display cakes for a friend who was launching his catering business.

  This one is very tall, covered in pearlized rose petals, with a sparkling broach on the top tier and a garland of crystals around the bottom.

Bottom tier of this cake is covered with hydrangea blossoms.  I think we made 18 dozen flowers.  The top tier has a large peony on the side.

When you run out of brown colour paste, this is the shade you get.  It's a soft dusty pink.  Verdie had already made the calla lilies.

Wow, I love those cakes! And you two friends are adorable too. It's nice of you to help your friend out. Will you be doing the cakes for his business? Can't wait to see you in a little over 2 months! Hugs, Cat
