Orange rose cake for Amy

For the past 2 weeks I have been teaching myself how to make gum paste flowers. A few weeks ago I learned how to make fondant so I had to learn how to make flowers with gum paste. This is my first stacked cake, it's just a small one but I think it turned out nice for being my first cake.
My youngest daughter Amy is having a birthday next month but she live in Co. so I will just send her a picture of it. Orange is her favorite color.... Anyway I don't think I could cut this one and eat it since it's my first one, lol, I know that sounds silly but I am very proud of it. Can you tell?
So Happy Birthday to Amy Lucy Poo! I love you!



I can't wait to make my next cake, humm maybe it will be pink :)
