What are you most proud of? I had so much fun doing this project, and the look on her face was so wonderful that I cried. This truly is a beautiful cake. The butter recipe and the buttercream filling with the geletane fondant. (almond flavor) Was just fantastic. I am very proud of this cake. I put alot of time into it. The hand made flowers. The were all very tiny and detailed to the exact size. I am very proud of my self on this one.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't do it in the heat. I live in Montana and it was very hot while I was doing this. Have an air condioner and no interuptions. Take your time and enjoy yourself. If your not good at fondant or gum past flowers this is not something to practice on. The baby is very small. I put a diaper and a bonnet on her. I brushed hair on her, I put pink in her checks. I paid attention to every detail on the baby to make her look real. This is a project that you have to pay attention to detail
