My First 3-tier Cake; A Pink & White Wedding Cake With Fondant Birds

This cake has kept me busy all week. It's the first time I've ever made a cake for anyone other than my own family. I think it turned out okay for it being my first ever 3-tier cake. I wanted it to be simple yet cute and I think I accomplished that.

  I found a cute clay bird topper set online but it was on some strange site that didn't tell me who makes them or sells them so I just tried to mimic the look using fondant and concentrated icing color pastes. I made the pink roses with gum paste, which I know I messed up in a million different ways and I want to thank my children for stealing my gum paste flower shaped cutters and losing them so I had to mold those things by hand making every single petal myself. Lesson learned!

Anyways, here it is...
