Buttercream frosting. Gum paste flowers. Brush embroider done on large peony. Royal Icing "cage" on bottom and top.
What was your inspiration?
I love Mrs Peters cake and wanted to see if I could make mine look anything like hers! This cake was great because it had some many great techniques you have to know. I can used the skills I learned in this class for all sorts of other cake designs!
What are you most proud of?
The Cage! My first one broke so I had to redo the royal icing and added more meringue powder and the second cage was very strong!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
This was just a practice cake for me so it took a few days between some of the steps. I would say to do it all within a few days so its all fresh in your head and the the frosting does not dry out!
