What was your inspiration?
A woman asked for a carved cheesecake made into a boxing glove for her husband - so this was my suggestion. I didnt want to attempt to carve cheesecake.
What are you most proud of?

Try to have the real object to see & touch when designing the cake version. Since the bottom tier was cheesecake & needed refrigerating and the top tier was covered in fondant (not refrigerated) I did not stack them together until I was ready to hand it off to the customer.
