I made a cake for a reunion of my friends from college. I made alternating kayers of white velevet and all-American chocolate cake and filled and frosted it with chocolate caramel ganache (from Rose’s Heavenly Cakes). I also put toffee bits between the layers for extra crunch! I decorated it with fondant ribbons and hand-sculpted sugar paste flowers. It was so delicious!

Lovely.  How did you attach the leaves and the little blossoms to the cake?  Are they just stuck to the cake or stuck into the cake? 

Thank you for sharing

The blossoms, leaves, and large flower are all on florist wire and then wrapped with floral tape to form a bouquet. The bouquet is then stick into a fat straw and a plug of gumpaste stuck into the bottom of the straw (so no wire or floral tape comes into contact with the cake) and then the straw is stuck down into the bottom tier at the edge where it meets the second tier.

Beautiful cake, and it sounds delicious.  I hear that caramel ganache is amazing—and with the toffee bits! Mmmmm!!!!!  Love both those cakes, too.  Great job frosting it—I love that particular frosting look and try it often, but I always have trouble at the corner around the top and can never get it quite right.
