Geisha Birthday cake

One of my new coworkers' mother has a birthday this weekend, and I was asked to do an asian-inspired small cake. This is the sugarpaste character for the top.

The cake was a simple 6" round, covered in white fondant, with chocolate fondant branches and sugarpaste cherry blossoms. I will post pics of the finished cake this week.

I had a lot of fun with this project! I just got a call from my coworker today, saying that her mom cried when she was presented the cake! Is it a bad thing that I'm happy that she cried? :)

update 5/20/08: I saw the pics from the client yesterday. I think they turned out GREAT! I should be receiving them tonight via email. As soon as that happens, this post will be updated with full cake pics. Stay tuned!
