This cake was made as a gift for my friend's wedding. I took the idea to wire the blossoms from Lexia's cherry blossom cake here: http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-photo_1561254.html. The apple blossoms were made using the blossom kit sold by Jennifer Dontz. I used wire through the center of the blossom, and used yellow royal icing to help adhere and for the appearance of stamens. I used green floral tape, and brown ribbon (couldn't find brown floral tape in time) for the branch. The cake is 12", 10" and 6" tiers, with black satin ribbon around the base, and a thinner black satin ribbon above. This cake traveled 9.5 hours, un-stacked.
