My Birthday Cake

I made a cherry blossom cake for my birthday, I wanted to represent the last year of my life with the cherry blossoms, symbolizing changes and eradication of a previous stage in my life, and then renewal and birth of a new stage, just as cherry blossoms quickly die and then our reborn again. The circle of life. All the covering and flowers were made out of fondant. I created the flowers by dying the white fondant two different shades of pink, and then used a big and small flower cookie cutter to cut the initial shape, and then the end of a pencil eraser to create indents in each petal, and bent them slightly.
