Tiny treasures of the woods are rendered sweetly in marzipan on an ivory marzipan-covered cake. A ladybug signifying good fortune rests on the frond of a fern; a fiddlehead with royal icing foliage uncoils overhead. Mushrooms with gum-paste stems, acorns,oak leaves, and fallen bark made of shaved chocolate further adorn the tiers.
