Do you sell this cake? No, just for fun

Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: I wanted this cake to be a funny cake for my brother's 50th birthday. It is a gravestone in grey and black, but nice bright flowers grow around it. I used the 12 inch square topsy turvy cake pan because the shape was perfect. I used royal icing flowers, but frosted the cake with buttercream. I also used some black spray coloring on the grey icing to make it look old.

Another great cake! The Black Color Mist really adds a lot of dimension to this one.The flowers look great, too, and I love the way they pop off of the gray background. I hope Kent loved it!
