This cake was a deep champagne color, and the bride wanted lots of lace flowers on the second tier and a band of lace flowers on the bottom tier. The bow and brooch are made from fondant, as well as the pearl borders. I used every lace mold I had, cutting around the rest of the design to just leave the flowery bits.
The flowers (see pic below) are gumpaste peonies that the bride wanted a deep fuchsia to match her wedding decor. I airbrushed them with several coats and colors of pink to give it just the right color. And everything in the kitchen got a thin coat of pink overspray! I should have used my little paint booth!!
Here's a picture of the entire cake for those that want to see the whole thing!
