The design for the larger cake came about from a photo I'd seen online... the inspiration cake was one tier, in pink, with a more traditional gumpaste rose... same repeating pattern. We changed the colors, made the rose more modern, added a tier... and a matching smash cake! If you're curious... ('cause I was)... there are 225 mini green football shapes around this cake. Hand cut, and hand placed... yup, that took awhile!
This particular cake was ordered for a family celebrating multiple spring birthdays - a great design for that... it could also be fun for a baby or wedding shower or a very unique wedding cake (imagine this stacked a few layers tall)!
