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!

Haha sorry I misread your post! The first cage I made broke into a million pieces and I thought I was going to cry because it took some time to make. I made up another batch of royal icing making sure to put lots more meringue powder to add to the strength and it worked like a charm! It was SO much stronger and was able to hold up to me moving it around a few times.
