Pearly Painted Vintage Silhouette Anniversary Cake

A cake done for a special couple. This was my first attempt at painting roses on fondant. Whether they look like roses or little pieces of reddish pink BLOB  ;-) is for you guys to decide. This is the second time I  have done a silhouette on a cake. Lines are a bit better than the first one. 

It is a vegetarian chocolate cake with buttercream covered with fondant and  gumpaste accents. Start to finish it roughly took about three days to do.  

First day went with planning and doing the silhouette frame , Second day with baking the cake and covering with buttercream and fondant. Started the painting and assembling the next day. 

This is with breaks in between to look after wailing kids, answering their questions, shouting 'don't do this', don't touch that' 'don't fight' , chauffeuring and preparing breakfast, lunch & dinner ;-).
