Cactus cake- 75% completed

This is what my cactus cake looks like currently. This cake is very easy to make.. but it takes forever to put the spines on the cactus. I also need to make more as I barely had enough to make the large cactus. I also decided to add another flower. I originally tinted it for the peach colored catus, but am very out of practice on coloring icing. Seems like it should be easy to do, but I'm going too dark for some reason. Luckily the cake doesn't have a due date so Tuesday will be fine for delivery.. even wednesday. Now you will notice that there is a slight difference in the color of the cacti.. this was deliberate as I wanted the smaller cactus to be slightly lighter and brighter in color. Not bad for an edible cacti garden huh?
