I made this cake for the son and now daughter in law of one of my coworkers. She is the best 6th grade teacher I have ever met and I was more than happy to make this cake for her, even though I was not quite feeling up to it. They wanted a tall cake with cream peonies around one layer. When the bride gave me the design idea for the cake it seemed just a little quirky, but pretty so I was excited. I had never made gumpaste peonies before so this was all trial and error, but I think they turned out pretty well. Let me know what you think.
