It was so much fun making all of the different flowers for this design. It was so pretty and feminine and just made me smile...a bit like sitting in a garden filled with flowers. The sides of the cake are piped with pin striping in royal icing, then each flower was delicately iced in place.
The pastel colour scheme allowed a lot more freedom for the assortment of coloured flowers, but it is always a bit of a worry having so many colours on the one cake. To help ensure they all compliment each other, I used the same colours in various flowers, like using the same yellow for the large gerbera in the centres of the white daisies. I think it all worked in the end.
