A cake designed around the sugar flowers
This cake design came from the stenciling and applique work I have seen on several cakes on other blogs and magazines. Adding a side design to match the sugar flowers used worked out well since I already had the cutters.
The top tier I wanted to keep fairly plain being so close to the sugar flowers so adding a few bougainvillea petals and keeping them uniform made a nice simple design. The bottom tier would be the orchids with a bit more of flowing design and the addition of some color, texture and shape. After I added the pearl borders I thought it all came together nicely...
