Still not quite finished, but.... close enough to show. Sixty-three roses, if I counted right. Might stick in a couple more buds to cover a few bald patches you only see from almost beneath the piece. Dunno yet. It needs varnishing, probably all three kinds. Satin for the cake, matte for the roses, and gloss for the ribbon.
From this angle you can't see the bald spots... but in the one above, they glare at me. If anyone wants to weigh in on this, I'd appreciate it.
