My inspiration is the camel skin lamps of Pakistan

I made a two tiers cake, as topper one lamp as protagonist, the colors are mauve and camel for the cake, I recreated a geometric design at the first tier, nuanced with cooper and gold colors, and some flowers; for the lamp I recreated and hand painted floral design, inside I put a small led light.
