A Little Late for Spring...

This cake was made at the end of summer, but the flowers were created to reflect the freshness of springtime! Delicate purple freesia, mixed with green hydrangea and white filler flowers...all grouped together in bouquets and set against a pale yellow fondant background.

Here are some photos of the freesia in progress:

And the final cake with the addition of a big, playful bow!
