Purple and cream 3 Tiers Cake

Good Morning Bloggers!
I made this 3 tiers cake and a 2 tiers cake for AnnMarie before my blog break.  It was for a bridal shower.  I really love how this 3 tiers cake turned out and AnnMarie also loved it. 

I made the cake stand between each layer using sewing thread spools and foam board.  I didn't decorate the cake stand because once I placed it between the cake layer it just blended in.

This is the top of the cake.  I used the mini roses for the top boxes because the boxes were much smaller the the middle and the bottom layer.  Mini roses tutorial can be found here. The rose petals were white and I sponged Elegant Eggplant ink from Stampin' Up! all around.  Then I added a pearl in the rose center.  They look much better in person.

This is how the cake pieces looked.

This is the 2 tier cake.  Oop! I forgot to cover the counter before I took the picture.

So lovely Helen. So much effort too. I am glad you liked my sponge roses. Sponge sheet crafting was quite popular in India 2 decades ago but now its a forgotten craft. I made these roses from some sponge sheets i had bought ages ago.Glad you liked them
