Spring Meadow cake

This was a nature-based cake for a little girl who loved butterflies and flowers. The butterflies were made from fondant and decorated with edible markers. These were made a few days earlier so they could dry completely. The flowers, also with gumpaste, were made in advance.

One of the things I really liked was how green the top of the cake became. The spot in the middle for the birthday girl’s ended up being several shades of bright green and it really made the message pop. This was a really colorful cake!
