"Just one picture can be the key to a soul' cake

I did this one for a lady who loves photography. I wanted to do something really pretty but yet hit the mark on the photography side. I had had this idea in my head for a while so I made molds of keys and frames and put pictures of herself and pictures of others she has pictured in the frames. I did not want a smooth cake so texturized the fondant to look very rough and dimpled then added a shimmer to that. I also did not want perfect frames or keys so left some with edges to add the white I wanted plus a more ripped out of pages feel to it. I did not have any clue about the party set up but when I delivered the cake it fitted perfectly into the table they had set up black, white and pink almost identical to the one on my cake and she totally loved it.
