Orange lily baby shower cake

Orange lily baby shower cake

I made 2 white cakes and frosted them with one of my frosting recipes.
4 days in advance I made my gum paste and let it sit in a ziplock bag overnight.
3 days in advance I made the baby girl out of 3 different pre colored gum paste and set aside to dry. I also made the little white flowers and lilies and set them aside to dry. The big lily petals I let dry on metal bowls so they would keep a certain shape.
2 days before the shower I hand panted the lilies.
The night before I made royal icing and made the orange and yellow roses.
The orange lily is the recipients favorite flower and she was having a girl and did not like pastel colors so this is the cake I dreamed up for her and she loved it.
