Pretty Poppies

My little cousin graduated from nursing school and I made the cake for her graduation celebration. My only guidance on design came from her sister, who said: “Think flowers!”. She knows that I like to take a simple thought and just run with it! I looked to my neighbor’s flower patch for some inspiration. I don’t normally care for the color orange… but he had some beautiful orange poppies in full bloom! I couldn’t help but be inspired by these gorgeous flowers!

I was also inspired by this very creative floral studio in Philly, who pairs colors and textures (that your average florist wouldn’t think to pair) to make up some of the best designs I’ve ever seen:

Here’s the design I came up with


Congratulations Tracina! We’re all so proud of you!
