Plum Passion Wedding Dress Cake

It's a two-tier cake with 8" vanilla cake on bottom and 6" dark chocolate cake on top. I covered them with buttercream and marshmallow fondant tinted in light purple and then did dark plum fondant ribbon on bottom of each layer, and dark plum buttercream swirls on top of the fondant. The lilly was made of gumpaste and airbrushed with plum. The dress was started with a piece of gumpaste shaped as a woman's figure and attached to a wooden skewer and allowed to dry overnight. The bodice was done first, I covered it with a mixture of white fondant and gumpaste. I then rolled out a circle of fondant and gumpaste to the size that I needed, and cut a slit half way through the circle on one side. I then slowly wrapped it around the waist and gathered it as I went. I made a small band of fondant and gumpaste and wrapped it around the waist to hide the seam. The small flower was a cut-out of the fondant and gumpaste. Lastly I mixed some of my fondant gumpaste mixture with a little black coloring to achieve the grey for the shoulders and neck. I attached it on top and shaped it into a neck. This was all pushed into the top cake.
