Gram's 75th Birthday Cake

I made this cake for my grandmother's 75th birthday. This is an "almond joy cake", one of my favorites. It consists of chocolate cake, coconut butter cream, chocolate butter cream, and caramelized almonds that are sprinkled into each layer for a delicious crunch. I decorated this cake with orchids that I attached to a stem and leaf assembly to make it look realistic. I completed the decoration using roses and calla lilies. The center of each calla lily was coated with gold luster dust (one of my grandmothers favorite colors).
