This is an 8" sponge cake I made for my friend whose nan was celebrating her 88th birthday. Her favourite colour is lilac so I chose lilac ribbons then decided to complement the lilac with soft peach roses dusted with ruby powder . I modeled some deeper lilac fantasy flowers with cotton stamens dusted with grape shimmer and interspersed them with the roses, ribbons and pearls. I used some of the lilac ribbon to wrap around the posy pick and create two tails . The flowers take a lot of time to make but I wanted it to be an elegant cake for a special celebration.
