Bottom design with the bigger 50. I'd put a cluster of 3-4 flowers down in front, one near the numbers, and 1-2 other clusters around the cake. One Butterfly on the front cluster. Maybe another flower and butterfly grouping at the bottom edge of the cake?

Just some thoughts.

I'd cluster the flowers in odd size clusters to make it more natural and I personally like the bigger numbers with less decorations.

I would use the bigger 50 in the first photos... 

 

 

I would also get a few of the wooden coffee stirrers (like you get in Costa, etc) and attach them to the back of the numbers, allowing about 2 inches at the bottom to insert into the cake.

 

My 'glue' of choice for this type of thing is royal icing. 

 

Turn the numbers over so the back is facing up, pipe some royal icing onto the stick and put into place.  As there's no rush, just leave overnight to set.  You will then be able to stand them up on the cake. 

 

Not sure about the 5, but for the 0 put one each side (if you put it in the middle, you'll see the stick through the hole!!)

 

But, as a previous poster has said...  whatever you make, it's done with love and your mum will be thrilled with it!!!

You must remember that you are your own worst critic! I love the colors, no matter what you end up doing she will love! Don't be so hard on yourself icon_wink.gif

You have several options now, just play around with them and see what you like best, but try not to over think it too much (easy to say right). I like the butterflies scattered a bit and odd numbers of clusters for the flowers. Just don't overwhelm the cake and you'll be great.

PS if you end up making standing numbers, make an additional set (if you go thinner) just in case a number breaks. Make sure you show us the final pic

Hi! I also like the big 50 in the center but try clusters of flowers and butterflies around the outside. Two pink roses with one purple one closer to the center. Another cluster with one pink flower and a purple butterfly placed so that it looks like it landed on the flower... Then a couple more roses, and continue that way all the way around. Gives it a nice full look and makes the cake more playful than just uniform all the way around.
I also liked the idea of placing a butterfly landing on the 5 if you have the space icon_smile.gif
She will love it no matter what you decide.

Thank you everyone. My blossom flower cutters came today so feeling a bit more optimistic that if the roses are too much they will look good! :)))
