Hummingbird Cake

The whole cake:

Matching cupcakes:
A whole bunch of cupcakes! If you haven't see me recently, this is why. I've been making 150 cupcakes and a cake for a surprise 50th birthday party for a neighbor. It was such an amazing party, at a resort up in Midway and the theme was hummingbirds. I did bright gumpaste flowers with cake shimmer on them for each cupcake and then put some on wires for the cake, which was a 6" round and about 10 inches high. I did lemon, strawberry and chocolate cake. They were delicious. I'm so glad I made my deadline and huge thanks to Melissa and Kathy Colton for helping me so much! Love you girls!
