Bridal Shower Cake with sugarpaste orchids

I love how this Bridal Shower cake turned out - soft and sweet!  The bride-to-be wanted some orchids on the cake and said that I could do whatever I wanted.  I couldn't wait - I just love orchids!
 
The cake was vanilla bean butter cake with zesty lemon swiss meringue buttercream.
I hadn't made sugarpaste orchids in a while so I took out my orchid book to select a photo for inspiration.  I chose the Cymbidium Orchids with a hint of pink - I was very happy with how they turned out as I only had Cattleya orchid cutters so I had to improvise a little.
