What are you most proud of? I love how this cake has generally turned out.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Prepare fondant decorations - book spines, quilt squares etc.- ahead of time and store in airtight ziplock bags on flat and even surface. This will keep the fondant soft and you won't have to rush through the decorating process.

Thank you! I really had a great fun making it. I love when people order something that is challenging and allows me to design something unique and try out new techniques. This so far is one of my favourite cakes, from those that I had a pleasure to make.
