The concept of this cake was very direct: dogwood tree and an octopus. Wait. An Octopus?

Edible Octopus

This edible octopus (well, I guess most octopi are edible) sat himself towards the read of the cake. A special meaning for the birthday girl.

The cake featured classic impressions, gold tones, and that beautiful edible dogwood tree. The sugar flowers were just beautiful.

    I saw the picture and thought it was a cherry blossom tree before reading it was a dogwood, either way a beautiful cake.
