Flower Basket Cake

I just completed Course II of Wilton Cake Decorating today and this was my final project: a basket of flowers. I did a slight different version than that of the lessons, which called for more of a spring-y look and I wanted to lean more towards an autumn appearance. But I'm partial to this cake...especially due to some difficulties with the cake that shall remain unspoken due to I don't feel like crying again! lol No but seriously, this cake was a lot of fun to make. It is a spice cake with buttercream frosting and royal icing flowers. I'm going to be saving it for my coworkers on Monday. I also heard that Monday or Tuesday is supposed to be the first day of fall so I guess the color theme is about right, huh?
