My friends favorite cake recipe was called a hummingbird cake.  I never heard of it but found a receipe and made it for her.  I kept it simple and didn’t put fondant on it.  Instead I made flowers and a hummingbird out of gumpaste to sit on the top of the cake.  I shaped the gumpaste and painted it.  I put pecans on the side and a little on the top of the cake where the hummingbird is sitting.  I never tasted a hummingbird cake before but I must admit, it is good!
