Simple Island Elegance

There is something so classic and beautiful about a cake covered in orchids isn't there? I loved the idea of a simple and classic cake for the pre wedding celebrations for the daughter of my friend. Her wedding was to be in Hawaii, but her mom wanted to do something special for her daughter before they all left for trip. 
 Forgive my kitchen background! There wasn't a chance to photograph it. I love white buttercream cakes with traditional purple orchids, just like the traditional island cakes. It's such an understated but classic look. The cake itself was a french vanilla cake with raspberry filling, to tie it all in i added a touch of clear raspberry oil to the almond buttercream, and can I just tell you how wonderful my kitchen smelled when it was all mixing up? MMMMMMMM
