So Flo competition entry- Bird House cake

Well here it is folks my entry for this years So Flo ( South Florida) cake and candy expo in Miami. Unfortunately I did not even place but I am just so very happy with my piece and having taken the step to do my first competition. I never went in expecting to win or even place so that was not a big deal. The show it self was good but the competition definitely had some major issues which I will be addressing a lot of things in some blogs here coming up so would love lots of feedback when I do.
Bottom tier I ended up making my own mold and doing a few small tricks so as it looked real, I am super happy with it and I used cake crumbs and dusts for the moss. Pink tier I had not seen the hearts done before until I was putting the gazette together and came across one like it but mine was already done at that point so I guess great minds think alike. I had been very interested in cocoa butter painting and had bought a box about a year ago with these lovely birds on it so used my box for the inspiration to do my very first ever painting.

Tiled tier is from a mold I created 2 years ago and was going to use it as a seperator tier but I had seen it done on another cake a while back and loved it so much I decided to use it in the same way. Then my bird house was a back and forth between birds or birdhouse but due to time running out I went with the bird house. I originally had another tier in between the birdhouse and tile tier but had to exclude it due to Height restrictions of the competition.

I hope you guys like it , big hugs , Shags
