A 70th Birthday Cake

This is a 70th Birthday cake I was ask to make for my mother-in-law, I only had 3 days to make it and at the beginning didn't know what sort I would make. I made 2 sponge cakes 12" and 8", I filled the the 12" with apricot jam and butter cream and the 8" with rashberry jam and butter cream. I decided on the colour as I had seen these gold numbers and used them for my colour guide. The roses are made of chocolate, I fastened the ribbon to the back of the cake with small gold pearl pins.
Everyone loved the cake and my mother-in-law cried when she saw it, so I was really happy. By the way I don't make cakes.
