Thank you so much. Loved this technique and your instructions were clear and easy to follow. Looking forward to doing the rest of the course.

I love your cake!...especially the pleats and the brooch. Would you be so kind as to explain how you made the brooch or where you purchased the mold? I've been looking everywhere for something that perfect.

Thank you for your kind comments. The brooch mould is a Ruth Rickey mould.... you can purchase it online from her site. The brooch is made out of gum-paste, then dried, and then I painted it with a super pearl colour dust for the pearls and in a gold paint on the rest of the brooch. To add extra sparkle, you can dust it with a small amount of disco dust. Hope that helps.
