What are you most proud of? Making and applying my own buttercream. Oh, and levelling the cake au Joshua!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It was nowhere near as scary as it seemed. Josh made it look so easy but he's a master! Go for it and follow the instructions.

However did you get your fondant petals so thin?? Gorgeous!

there's a youtube vid that shows how to handcraft carnations by stretching the petals. I used that technique plus added a little CMC tylose to my fondant.
