When I first saw the picture of the cake that Diana wanted, I thought the design looked like fish scales, very nice scales they are. It was only when I was at Diana’s place that one of her friends said that it’s a rose petal cake. There are in fact some loose petals at the bottom tier. Hence, I shall call this a rose petal cake 🙂
These are the 3 tiers of lemon poppy seed cake, all crumb coated with butter cream.
The top and bottom 2 tiers all ready to be transported.
Close up of all the petals on the bottom 2 tiers. Must have cut out hundreds of those petals for the 3 layers!
And this is how the final cake looks like.
