Fondant Nature cake for 60th birthday

Thought I'd just share some photos of a cake I made recently. It was for a 60th birthday party and the lady who it was for is into crystals, healing stones, flowers and other things from nature. The cake itself is a chocolate orange mud cake with ganache layer under the marshmallow fondant topping.The flowers, stones and butterflies are all made with fondant with the details added with watered down gel food colouring. The stones and top of cake have also had a bit of sparkle added to them with some silver edible glitter.

Here is the final product with candles and silver wooden 60 held in place with royal icing. I was lucky enough to be a guest at the birthday party and I must say chocolate orange mud cake is my new favourite flavour!
