Stripes and flowers mini cake

I made this mini cake for a birthday. Since it's a six inch cake there wasn't much to decorate so I needed to keep the design simple.

That shouldn't be confused with quick, however.  There are just about a hundred little gumpaste flowers on the top of the cake.  While those were drying, I colored some fondant to cut into strips and attach to the side of the cake.

Then it was just a matter of adding frosting to the top to hold the flowers in place - it's a great, low pressure design since the flowers on top cover all of the stripe edges.  It's no big deal if the strips are different lengths or widths.
