I love a customer that gives you free reign over a design. The only request was flavor (which was lemon cake and I added a lemon curd filling with a light lemon buttercream to top it all off0 and dogwood flowers. Most who know me know flowers are something I never get asked for so something I rarely do. I ordered in some veiners for the flowers and did just a basic leaf that looked similar to the dogwood leaf.
I love textured tiers so of course I had to have one of those and then decided to try to airbrush a stencil which did not quite work like I wanted to and although my youngest son who seems to think he is the worlds best cake critic said to rip the fondant off and redo it, I decided I actually liked the non uniformness of the design so kept it. For a first time round at this kind of design I am pretty happy with it and would have no problems attempting the flowers again even though this was my first time wiring flowers I think they would be acceptable to most customers. I hope you all like it
