I was asked to make a 35th wedding anniversary cake for my sister-in laws parents. We looked at the original cake – and decided to do a modernization of it.

I used gum paste to make all the roses and Stephanotis flowers & leaves. The top and bottom layers were made out of Styrofoam dummies – we didn’t need that much cake. The other two tiers were real – one marble cake with chocolate buttercream, and one a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. Yum.
