When I first started this cake I wanted to tear it up and throw it away. It looked really bad! But, this was one of those cases where you learn from your mistakes. I think it turned out lovely. When I started I wanted a burgundy/wine color with light pink. It ended up a dusty rose and vintage purple. I added the pearls and tons of luster dust to make it glitter and look very vintage. In the world of cake decorating sometimes you actually like your mistakes better than your original plan.
