Let them eat cake!!

A while ago I agreed to make a cake for a Women's Activity at our church today.  I obviously wasn't anticipating getting sick.  (Don't worry, I washed my hands about 1,000 times.)  I had big plans for this cake, but just didn't have the energy to make those plans a reality.  It is a butter cake with buttercream frosting and gumpaste flowers.  The cake and frosting are from scratch.  The gumpaste is ready made, but I tinted it and shaped it.  I didn't want to mess with making it myself.  Even though it's not what I wanted, I think it still turned out well.  What do you think?
I love making cakes.  Love it.  I really hope that some day I can do wedding cakes.  I'm not there yet, but I think I'm off to a good start!  Anyone need a cake?
