Cake Flower!

Tomorrow is the retirement party for a colleague, who is a great gardener! I offered to make the cake for about 40 guests, and after much thought, I decided I'd make a large flower cake. I planned out the baking pans I'd use, figured out what I'd carry it on, made the carrot cakes with applesauce, raisins and pecans, froze the cakes until today, and today I put the lot of them together and iced them. It took me from 6 p.m.- 9:30 p.m. to ice them, and after working all day, I'm about done in! However, I thought I'd show a few pics taken over the past few days. I'll add a bit of decoration to the board once I get it to the party. :)
