This is a 3-tier (6-8-12-inches with two layers in each tier filled with buttercream). ALL buttercream except a few gum paste leaves, and some silk leaves on top and around the base of cake.
I hand painted with airbrush paint the areas of brown and also the heart with initials. After painting some areas around the sides I went around again with an icing spatula dipped in very warm water. Always shake the knife off after dipping in water, or it will cause drips.
I just had one picture of this cake, until I find my camera memory chip to download the rest, so one is better than none~ ;)
