Painted Magnolia Wedding Cake

This was a display cake that I made for a business that has a stained glass window with the browns and greens in it in their building. It has wafer paper images that I painted like the cake I posted about last week, and gumpaste branches and flowers that I also painted. The paint was made from royal icing.


I like the effect of the "paint" on the gumpaste flowers and leaves...It makes them look kind of cartoony up close.

The gumpaste leaves and dimension in the printed images also gives it some depth even though it's a flat surface. It's a little confusing, just the way I like it.
