Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Fondant, edible icing sheets for the photos, piping gel, food grade dusting powders

What are you most proud of? With the help of the edible pictures the towel seems to have passed this challenge of looking like itself, a towel.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Carve the underlying cake of the towel to resemble the basic shape of the finished towel then curl and roll and fold the fondant in a similar fashion as one would a towel; fondant, before it hardens will want to flatten to whatever shape it is covering. I used a piping tip to put a texture on the towel to help create it's effect. To help with the towel effect I heated up some piping gel to help create the water droplets.

Wonderful! Wish I had your skill for our last convention. In trying to figure out your work on the towel, did you pipe "loopy" part of the towel on top of the fondant, if so what did you use? If not, did you poke the the tip in and out? That towel sends it over the top for me. Love all of your projects!

I am in awe. A couple of questions: Did you add cmc or other to the fondant for the towel and if so how much? And could you explain in a little more detail how you did the texture for the towel. The book itself is fantastic, but the towel ...WOW! You could teach a couple of courses!
