I love waterlilies

I've taken probably hundreds of waterlily pictures at the botanic garden, so when my mom asked me to make a cake for her friend's daughter's 30th and told me to "just do something pretty and different" this was the first thing I thought of. I've bean meaning to experiment more with sugar flowers for a while, just have not had time or opportunity. Each petal is made separately and dried and then "glued" together with royal icing. I made the dragon fly by hand and cut out the lily pads and goldfish from the sugar paste too. I think it came out great and the birthday girl was also excited when she saw it.
