I decided to make my own cake for our 12th anniversary. I had daisies in mind, but no real design. I'm so happy with how it turned out. I took a cake class back in '98 and haven't really done much since then. Made with homemade buttercream icing and the daisies are cut from fondant.  The top layer is chocolate and the bottom is strawberry cake.
Here's the end result:


Plus 12 cupcakes (12 years)  Cheesy

Wow, that's beautiful!  When I saw the pictures I was sure the daisies were silk flowers.  They look lovely.  Great job!

Oh wow! That's a really pretty cake. I love the simplicity of the daisies and white/yellow color scheme. Happy Anniversary!
