White Floral Fantasy {21st Birthday Cake}

This cake was so pretty in real life!  The fantasy flower took alot of time to make and measured approximately 20cm {8inches} across but was definately worth the effort. The cake drum was 8 inches round and 8 inches tall.

I delivered this one to a private residence in Warwick last weekend, they had a marquee
in the backyard that was absolutely beautifully decorated in white and silver complete with
fairy lights, tea lights and candles scattered throughout, paper lanterns in varying sizes
adorned the ceilings some even with lights inside them, too many gorgeous details to mention...I didn't want to leave!!

The damask pattern around the cake is done with royal icing, once dry I dusted with a small amount of pearl lustre dust

Finished off with white satin ribbon, I think this balanced out the look of the pattern

Here is the top view of the huge flower,  each petal was made individually and set aside to dry before assembling it petal by petal, I used a bunch of white stamens for the centre ...crystals would also work well for something like this.  

I have no doubt this was a fabulous party,
'Happy 21st Birthday!'
