Prosperity Bowl Cake

Is this cake very Chinese or is it very Chinese???  Hahahaha.  It was commissioned for an 80th birthday.  I have always wanted to make a very bright and eye catching cake....since the customer's main criteria is the bowl I decide to go Chinese all the way.  Red cake, green jade, prosperity symbol, peaches, cranes and that oh-so-Oriental pine tree branches.

The gold bowl made with sugar paste

The velvety sugar peaches and prosperity jade
