A Tribute in White

A dear friend just suffered the loss of her beloved father from a heart attack.  What pulls at my heart the most is that three beautiful babies will grow up not knowing the joy and love that a special grandpa can bring.  I know what they will miss out on since I had that special grandpa.  My grandpa passed away much too early from lung cancer but he lives forever in my heart and in my treasured memories.  Why the tribute in white?  This amazing dad, grandpa, friend, son.....always dreamed of hosting a party in all white.  To celebrate the life he lived and the person he was the funeral and reception will be in white.  For this beautiful and loving family, I wanted to make a special cake in white that represented his love of gardening and the three most beautiful grand babies, the delicate butterflies, that he is now watching over from above.  The cake is full of flowers from roses, dahlia's, wisteria, a large center magnolia, and smaller daisies.  I wanted this cake to resemble a magical garden, tended to by a very special angel, and visited by the most magnificent of God's creations.
