3 Tier cake (6", 8", 10"), icing, chocolate icing, fonant for ribbon band, cake stand. I made the sugar flowers from very thinly rolled gumpaste using a heart cookie cutter - then thinned the edges. I used a ball of brown gumpaste for the middle, wrapped & glued the soft petals around the middle, and stuck the cut-in-half stamins into the middle. My flowers didnt get much time to dry before needing them (I'm a terrible procrastinator) but all was good.
