Blossoms on quilt

This is my daughter's birthday cake. She wanted lots of flowers on her favourite dark chocolate cake, but as I did not want her to gobble up massive amounts of sugar paste, we both agreed on a cake with many small blossoms. This is the first time I tried imprinting the fondant with a dressmaker's wheel for a quilt-like pattern on the cake. It may not be done with Martha Stewart precision but I am nonetheless happy with the results.
And here's a shot of the heady dark chocolate cake that really packs a punch, underneath all that seemingly meek, soft and demure white appearance. How apt, I thought. Happy birthday my dear girl. Love you lots.
