So, for the next cake, we mixed some colors into the icing and practiced some of the flowers. I guess it was the coloring that got me. It seemed like a great idea to add a lot of color in the beginning so that I wouldn't be adding little amounts at a time. I know, I know, everyone knows you start out with a little and add more as needed.
Instead of a relaxing and peaceful garden cake, I made this. Please note the item in the middle is a bunch of grapes and the squigly lines are the vines. The odd looking purple flower is my first attempt at the "Wilton Rose." Believe it or not, I'm a little proud of the pink flowers.
