Fondant Hydrangeas and Stone

Fondant Hydrangeas and Stone

I made this cake for my mom-in-laws 65th birthday. The centerpiece flower arrangements that I made for the party were the inspiration for this cake. The hydrangeas are handmade using "fondx". The rest of the decorations are made of fondant including the "urn". It took me a couple of hours to create and perfect the look of "cracked stone". I have never seen it done on a cake so I just played with the fondant for a while until I was happy with the look. To see more pictures go to: http://www.myspace.com/withloveandconfection.

Thank you so much Jo!!! Yes, the cherubs are made from a mold. I found them at Hobby Lobby. Any craft store should carry them.
Best wishes!
