my friend has asked me to do her mum's birthday cake (hobby baker). I sent her a few inspiration pics, and she said she would like a combination of these two... flowers and candles...
while I really like both on their own, I feel like the candles are playful/cartoony and flowers are elegant. I cannot imagine them together on the same cake in my head (obviously they don't have to be exactly the same as in the pics, but still). I don't really like cartoony flowers and I can't picture fondant candles being elegant, lol.
does anyone have any ideas as to how to incorporate these two? or do you think that kind of cake would just end up looking messy and thrown together?
I don't have much experience with decorating. thanks for any input!
