  1. this looks so beautiful, i can just imagine a full wedding cake done like this with a flower topper and one or two flowers placed around other tiers. understated elegance i absolutely love it xx

  2. Hi Lorelie! I love this, and it doesn't look that hard. I decorated the kids' birthday cakes years ago, but haven't done any in years. I would like to venture into cakes like this! So pretty! I have a question or two that I'm sure is somewhere in the depths of your website. lol. What ball tool do you recommend? I don't see that in your Amazon store. Plastic or metal? Also, I saw a comment by someone that you have quoted on your website that said not to add milk to your buttercream that will be under fondant. Can you possibly link me to where that is discussed in more detail? Trying to find my courage to jump in! Thanks so much!
