Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Fondant, royal icing, sugar pearls

What are you most proud of? That the flowers turned out so well (especially the big gerber daisy) and that everything went down smoothly.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Try several methods of decordating the butterflies, i.e. painting them or using fondant and/or sugar pearls, etc. At first I wanted to paint the butterflies, but unfortunately, the result was not what I wanted on my cake. So my method of choice was definitely using fondant, sugar pearls and royal icing. And the butterflies fit the cake better than the painted ones. However, it was a nice learning process and I've never had so many butterflies in my kitchen before :).
