Garden Variety: Garden of Sweet Delights

A pristine cake rises from a symphony of blooms in notes of pink, white, and yellow.
Against white fondant, a wreath of flowers -- among them, fringed nerines and primula in pink, tiny yellow kalanchoe, and papery sweet peas -- is even more glorious. The cake base rests within a ring of floral foam; space in between keeps the flowers from touching the icing. The top tier is Styrofoam, providing support for the weighty bouquet. Freesia, roses, and the bouquet's trailing ribbon embellish the cake's lower tiers.
