Thank You Cake

This was my cake project last week. A co-worker ordered it from me for her last day at work. The flowers are some flowers from the new Wilton course, Advanced Gum Paste Flowers, with some changes and some I just kind of made up using basics gum paste flower techniques. I've never been good at getting buttercream nice and smooth (I'd much rather have covered this cake in fondant) and my piping writing is still horrible despite using a tracing technique. But, hopefully the pretty flowers make up for the rest of it.

Tomorrow, I'll show you what I made out of the leftovers of this cake [mini cakes & cake pops]. Unless you watched yesterday's Tuesdays with Tish, then you've seen the treats. In the post, I'll show you how I made them.
