The cake

Here it is! I enjoyed the decorating part of the cake the most I think. I made the butterflies out of royal icing a couple of days befor the wedding after finally getting the approval of the idea from Hillery. Instead of using traditional fondant I used the marshmallow recipe. I got a few comments from people that it did taste better. I'm not much of a frosting eater, I find it still too sweet but it does taste better.

Picture from top left an action shot of me putting the final touches on the cake, The finished product, the front corner view, the topper and a close up on the butterflies.

I used the 5/8" wide old olive grosgrain ribbon (SU) around the base of the cake layers. It's probably hard to tell in the pictures but I dusted some green shimmer powder around the main layers of the cake.
