Hummingbird Cake

One of my mom's very good friends recently contracted me to make an 80th birthday cake for her mother-in-law. She loves hummingbirds so we wanted to incorporate a hummingbird into the cake. I wanted everything to be edible, so I got a candy pop mold online and made it out of colored white chocolate.
The inside of the cake is chocolate/vanilla marble. It was a first time recipe and it turned out AMAZING.  I covered it with white buttercream and then made all of the flowers out of gum paste. The plaque is made out of white chocolate as well. 
I am really happy with the way this one came out. I think it is one of my favorite cakes that I have ever made!
