Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Used Nick Lodges class intensively as well as photographing a real peony to study it. I thought my cutters were a little to frilly for the outer petals so I modified my flower by using a large rose petal for the outer layers which I think produced a less "structured" effect. I also used Cake Lace for the first time. The initials plaque was an edible image cut with an electronic cutter.

Magnificent! The cake is so clean and neat looking. The colors go so well.
