Bohemian Chic Yet Springy













The girls that ordered this baby shower cake were so much fun.   They brought me like 4 different scrapbook papers that were being used for the shower and they were all extremely detailed prints of all kinds of things.  It made designing this cake interesting.  At first we went with "Bohemian Chic" then it turned to "Springy" and this is how it turned out.  The giant flowers were supposed to go on the ledges of the tiers but they were too giant so they had to go on the top.  Plus they kind of interfered with with butterflies too so the top was best.  I have no idea how to make real gum paste flowers but this was my best shot at making them look kind of real but of course not botanically correct.  I'm nowhere near that skillful but for being a total amateur and just making stuff up I thought they were cute.  :o)
