After a week, this is the number of gum paste roses I could make in my spare time. It's surprising how long these suckers take but it's worth the work!
There! I had the topping, now I just needed the cake. Hmm...
And then we lit 'er up!
I love how the camera plays tricks and makes the cake look like it's on fire!
Love you Terra!
