Poor first attempt

What was your inspiration? So I thought I would try hand painting on buttercream to give the effect of "stained glass". I have seen it done on fondant, but as I love working with buttercream, I thought I would see if I it would work the same on buttercream. It worked fine except I don't like this cake. But I don't like it due to my choice of colors and lay-out. If I had to do it over again, I would choose more muted colors (peaches, light greens...) and I would have the flowers more symetrical. Oh well, live and learn! :) As this cake was just for fun it didn't matter...tasted great though! :) Thanks for looking at my mess! Lisa

Why is this a poor first attempt? I think it's gorgeous! I never thought of doing a stained glass cake but you can bet I'm going to try it now! Cool!
lisascakes answered:
It's a poor attempt because my technique was not and color choice was bad -- if you google, you'll see some REALLY beautiful cakes that make mine look like crap - but thanks for the kind words! :) Lisa

Awesome! Looks just like stained glass- the variation in color is reealistic.
