The anemones were actually a light blush pink and left over from another project. To my make things easier on myself (with all the other party planning/prep I had to do) I chose to reuse and re-purpose a couple of these flowers. So I re-dusted them with deep pink and a little purple. I painted the edge of the petals and the centers silver to give them kind of a "jeweled" effect.. I actually started with the flowers and then designed the rest of the cake around them!
I don't know if I would do smaller than a 4" on top... the smaller the cake, the more difficult they get to work on... they just want to slide away!
Thanks for checking out my little cake!
Happy Caking :)
