Cake Design--Drape cake


I had a cake to deliver to the Jefferson Hotel yesterday, and I got to make a lot of gumpaste flowers that I don't usually make. I did some orchids and lisianthus, with green leaves that were both solid and variegated. There were also burgundy gumpaste roses, which were going to be the main flower onthe cake.
Here are some of the flowers...
And here's the finished cake. I used an Italian Meringue
buttercream on this, and the drapes were made of gumpaste.

If anyone has any suggestions on which orchid cutters are good, please let me know. I had to fake it with the ones that I had, but it made me realize that I need to get some good cutters.
