It all started with a flower.....one of my favorite Spring flowers, the tulip. The color scheme came next, bright Spring greens and tangerines. These colors scream Spring to me when everything in the world is fresh and new. I then sketched out my design on paper so I had a visual to build from.

Then I began the process of making, bulding, and decorating this Spring garden inspired wedding cake. Enjoy!!
|Just covered the cake in fondant and stacked the pieces together|
|Working away on the fondant pearls|
|beginning to add fondant details|
|and a beautiful bow|

This cake was a labor of love and one that I believe captures my love of fondant cakes and the Spring Season! I cannot wait for the wedding cake competition next year. Let the planning begin!!
