What are you most proud of? I'm pretty proud of the whole thing. The cake is a little sloppy truth be told. I'm sure part of that is inexperience. I think the temperature had something to do with it also. It was a warm summer day and I don't have air conditioning. The fondant was really soft. That made the draping droop a little extra and I couldn't use the mold for the trim. I was planning on using a different mold for the jewels but this was the only mold I could get to sort of come out. I ended up rolling the pearls by hand. It was a lot of work, but it looks pretty much the way I wanted and I think it suited the party perfectly.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Reserve a large block of time. This took hours and it was only two tiers.
