Fish and Flowers Cake

Well I had my cake decorating "hat" on yesterday and today!   The cake was originally just going to be for Greg, but although his wife had a cake earlier this year, they are having a joint 60th Birthday party on Saturday and he wanted her name included on the cake.  Oh heck - fish and flowers!  I was then beginning to wish I hadn't volunteered to do this for my pal, who was not up to doing it herself.  Confess I did cheat when I went to buy all the bits for the cake, and bought a ready-made rose.  (this was originally white with the coloured leaves, so I coloured the rose to match the scheme I was thinking of.)   I painted the fish on very thin flowerpaste.  The cake is vanilla sponge.

You may recall that I made this card earlier for my pal to give to her nephew, which was the inspiration for the cake.
