Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Butter cream frosting and gum paste flowers and shells

Your flowers are absolutely beautiful in color, technique and arrangement. The combination of flowers and shells are terrific. What happened to your cake though? Why would you cover it so organically and sloppy. The cake is crooked as well. Professionally speaking flowers that you spent so much time in a making look so formal deserves a well made, formal, clean stage, which is the cake. Keep up the good work, you are close to perfection. I would recommend a class on how to finish a buttercream cake properly. I Use Swiss buttercream and people always tell me that it looks as smooth as fondant. I have done thousands of cakes over the years and I think that I have made 3 fondant cake. Primarily because fondant is gross and the recipe I use for Swiss buttercream comes out amazingly smooth and is not overly sweet, like fondant.
