Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: I took the lessons from Maggie Austin's cake class and made a fall cake by embossing the modeling chocolate with a design and some shimmer.

What are you most proud of? This was my first attempt making flowers using the Mexican Hat method. Also a first making berries:

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be sure to use Maggie's recipe for gumpaste, it really works so much better for these flowers than the commercial kind.

Lovely, I like the embossing very much!
