|Thank you Mr. Benjamin Moore|
|I started with trimming hundreds of paint chips|
to create flat bottomed "petals"
|I arranged them in four tiers, starting with a|
small light cream top (big enough to hold her cupcake)
then a soft green and blue layer,
then two deeper blue/green layers
and ending with a large "chocolate" bottom.
|I also made hundreds of white, cream and chocolate |
" mushrooms". A simple circle, with a slit to the center.
Pulling the corner on each side of the slit together,
I glued them with a dab of hot glue.
|Even though I carefully packed and shipped the |
cake unassembled, there was a little repair
I had to do when I got there.
The hundreds of mushrooms hid lots of sins.
