This is a cake I baked and decorated for my parents' 40th wedding anniversary.

I used home-made buttercream for the first layer of frosting. On top of that (the visible white part) is a decorative foundation of white rolled fondant. The rest is all made from various colors of royal icing. This was my first attempt at making lifelike flowers, and I think they turned out fairly well.
