InstructionsThe bodice and umbrella is made of cake.
3 Day Class taught by Kaysie Lackey at Mother of Cakes in Allentown PA - It was an exhausting 40 hours crammed into 3 days but well worth it!!
I would definately sign up for more classes as my budget allows!!

Cake, icing, modeling chocolate, fondant, food coloring, tylose, core board, wooden base, hardware for internal structure. You will need a carving knife, fondant tools, everclear or vodka, paintbrushes, stitching tool, dusting powders and lastly...lots of time and patients! Sorry to be so vague, but this was a paid 3 day class and I am unable to divulge all info related to the making of this cake - thank you for your understanding.
What was your inspiration?
I seen this cake class and had to go!! Kaysie Lackey, the instructor, has been on Food Network Challenges and she sketched & designed this cake herself (a little Tim Burton style).
What are you most proud of?
The whole project - it was an excellant learning experience with a great instructor! Also it traveled very well in a 3 1/2 hour car ride (the umbrella was removed for traveling).
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
If you have a chance to go to a class that Kaysie Lackey is teaching - GO! It was well worth the money I spent.
