Plant a lilac in spring

My Mother-in-law loves flowers, she grows things just by looking at them (I'm pretty sure she just has to look at plants and say 'well?? Grow!' and they do).  She loves lilacs in springtime and we planted one today in the yard as well.  This cake celebrated her birthday, a carrot cake with a maple swiss meringue buttercream filling.  The dirt is Oreo cookies ground up, the gloves and trowel and hose are all fondant, the water is hard candy.  The lilac is fondant and although time consuming, I love how it turned out.
