Congratulations that is indeed a beautiful cake! I've seen your cake photos and they are great! I'm sure you will have more orders to come.
One question on butterflies and flowers on side of the cake, Are they buttercream transfer?

Here's the details on how I decorated the cake:
The fairy on top: I used the method previously discussed on this board, where you print out your image and then poke holes in your paper along the outline. Let your BC crust and press the image on- all of the little bumps from the pinholes make an outline and you trace over it with frosting. I have to say, I normally would've done a BCT, and decided to give this a try. I am going back to BCTs, I didn't care for this, it was too hard for me to see the design. The fairy also has some of the spray color (I'm asking for an airbrush for Christmas!) on her wings, and then sparkle dust.

The sides: The first thing I did was cut out a cloud 'stencil' out of parchment paper. Nothing fancy, just some uneven bumps. I pinned the stencil in place with some toothpicks, and sprayed the blue color on lightly. It's important to always start and stop on the parchment paper to avoid any dark spots of color. I moved the stencil around randomly on the sides and repeated til I was happy with the look. The butterflies and dragonflies are all freehand, done with thin bc and nothing bigger than a #3 tip directly onto the sides. Then I went back and traced the tops of the clouds with white frosting and a #18 star tip.

The flowers and grass below: I started by spraying on just a touch of green color along the bottom edge. Then a touch of blue along the top edge. The flowers/grass & ladybugs are all freehanded on the sides. A few of them are more 3D than others.

Thank you all so much for your kind comments! I am really floating on Cloud Nine today!!
