Oh to be the girl who gets this cake! I was invited to a surprise birthday party and this gum paste masterpiece was hiding in the kitchen. It has been a while since I have seen gum paste flowers up close and I was so impressed by the workmanship! I envy bakers with professional skills like this. Imagine being able to make a garden with your fingertips.
I am highlighting this cake because I wanted to put the "everyday beauty" spotlight on bakeries and gum paste flowers. The next time you order a cake for a special occassion, considering ordering something spectacular.
This is a cake that I'll never forget; it made all of the guests (and the birthday girl!) feel special and isn't that what a celebration is all about?
