Pink Peony Cake
This cake is totally different than I had intended when I started making it! I had planned to make two fondant margarita glasses with fondant lime slices that would stand up on top of the cake and the design would have centered around that.
I attempted twice to make the glasses and the results didn't turn out the way that I wanted so I decided to go with pink peonies but had to change some colors and elements of the design to make that work.
The cake is a pumpkin sponge cake filled and iced with cream cheese icing and covered with a caramel-flavored fondant.
A gumpaste peony and bud complete the design. I'm fairly happy with how it turned out, although the margarita glasses would have been cute too!
