Arabesque Birthday

This is a Moroccan inspired Birthday Cake. I was so excited when I received the request from an out of state client. The client requested pink. I added a light green gumpaste tag which says Happy Birthday in Arabic. I also put Happy Birthday in English, just so the cake doesn't get lost in translation.
I love the whole arabesque look. Making this cake I learned so much about middle eastern design and how much geometry plays a role in the design.
Here is a tip for you fellow cake decorators out there, to imitate the design on the side of the cake use a calla Lilly cutter:)
