Wow!
Is that spun sugar to "tie" it together?

I just looked at this one on your journal. The aspragus looks so aspargus-y. That is some serious fondant colouring and shaping skill.

Also you take very nice photographs of the food you make.

Thank you so much. This cake was one of the first things I did. I'm a little embarrassed by it now, so it's lovely to hear you say that. :]

This would be a great cake for a child's birthday party. It could also be made to hide a cake in plain sight. Making an asparagus flavored asparagus cake would be a pleasant surprise for unsuspecting consumers.

In case you already didn't know, Sweetapolita did this cake with a tutorial [link] so if you were inspired by the google image of this cake, it would be proper to cite the inspiration.

Thanks for the link. I didn't know there was a tute for it (that would have helped!). I hadn't see that one before, and that's not where I drew inspiration from.
