Do you sell this cake? No, just for fun

Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: I made the pot out of a tiffin tin, I cut the end off and placed it on a disc of the same size. I then layered with buttercream and fondant, then cut the middle out of the cake and sprinkled chocolate cake crumbs onto the top as dirt. I mixed some red food powder into the crumbs to give the dirt a more earthy look (I didn't have any dark brown). I made the flowers from gumpaste as shown in the class, I dusted the stems with brown and green to make them look a bit more realistic and woody.

I was so pleased with this cake because for once it came out the way I saw in my head. I was also pleased because the cake just sat there and no one knew it was a cake until I revealed it. I made this for my aunty and now she keeps the flowers in a vase.
