Japanese Blossom Baby Shower Cake

I went to California last week to visit my family. My cousin Cherise is pregnant and had her baby shower this past Sunday. I wanted to do something special for her so I made her baby shower cake and some cupcakes to go with it. Her theme was Japanese blossoms and Pink!
The cake and cupcakes were Vanilla Cake with Double Berry Filling and Swiss Buttercream frosting. The top tier was almond flavored cake though.  I used fondant to make the twigs, leaves and flowers.  My Aunt Pam and Cousin Cherise helped me make the fondant accents. I used my Aunt Cyndi's tools and advice. It was a great weekend and lots of fun!

Cherise's friend Rachel did an amazing job decorating!
