Bridal Showers are for the Birds

I made this cake for a bridal shower today. The bride loves strawberry and funfetti cake, so the top layer is funfetti and the bottom is strawberry. I made buttercream icing, then tinted it to a daisy-ish yellow. The bride's colors are yellow and orange, and my dear friend planning the shower wanted orange Gerbera daisies on the yellow cake. She provided me with the birds you see on the top (purchased at Michael's), but was imagining them sitting on a branch of some type, so I made a little branch out of fo
ndant for the 'love birds' (or the 'birds of love' as my friend might like to refer to them) to sit on. I made the daisies out of gum paste, and then hand painted the orange coloring on them. I really like the way this turned out and I hope you do too! Congrats Angi and Solomon!
