Plumeria Flowers made out of Gumpaste

Looks like I've switched over from cake making to flower Its just that I love flowers & always wanted to try out some Gumpaste flowers , coz I've seen people make beautiful wedding cakes decorated with flowers. I must mention Neryl's blog has been my inspiration. Although you won't find any of these flowers on her blog, but I love the way she uses Beautiful floral sprays on her cakes.I referred to a youtube tutorial to make these flowers.Hope u like it.Thanks for looking.

A dear friend of mine has recently purchased her first home here in the US.I made this cake on the occasion of her housewarming.I personalized the mailbox with their names also added the house no. to it. Everything on the cake is edible & made of Homemade Marshmallow Fondant & Gumpaste. All of the guests as well as the hosts were pretty excited about the cake. The cake was a Chocolate Cake layered with Swiss Meringue Buttercream (SMBC). This was my first attempt at making SMBC but it turned out Gr8.I enjoyed making all the toppers for this cake.A special thanks to my hubby without whose help & suggestions this cake wud not have turned out the way it has :-)
