What advice would you give someone starting this project? Practice your skills then go after your desire, In my case, my desire is to do the classic car cake.

Bobert, this is wonderful. What size is it? I can't establish scale from the photos. Is that a butterfly? Representing transformation?

The size of the cake board is 15" square and the overall height of this cake is about 18". A gum paste butterfly does indeed grace the ginger bread chair back by sitting on the chair's upper edge. No practical reason for this butterfly other than providing a little life to this cake.

This is so realistic that I am honestly not sure which part is actually the cake! How did you do the computer, the print out and the pad of paper?

The actual cake is the desk. The computer screen is rice krispies with an edible icing sheet printed on with food color.
