What are you most proud of? Just how the cake went together. Since I was a guest at the wedding this was their wedding gift. I scooped up the flowers when the cake was being served, did some minor repair work and then made an arrangement of the flowers of which I presented to them later. They are under glass on display and look fabulous. Two years and counting.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be afraid of bold colours. I was a little nervous of the cymbidium orchids being really dark and doing the throat of the tiger moth. But you just have to move forward and go for it.
