My first gumpaste orchids on a nice little fondant covered cake. What it hides underneath however is a spice cake, covered and filled with a maple swiss meringue buttercream frosting. Sounds good doesn't it?

Then I sat and stared at it while I was working and couldn't stand it anymore. I painted on more flowers.

Then....if you stare at it long enough you hate how it turned out and with 1 hour to go before delivery, you take the fondant off, trash the orchids, and start over.

Much happier with these orchids.
