What was your inspiration?
I got the design idea from Zaco cakes version.
What are you most proud of?
Making such a tall cake. This was a challenge to carve but it was some of my cleanest work.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
There was supposed to be palm trees but they fell. You should make them at least three days in advance. Modeling chocolate is perfect for cutouts without snagging like fondant does.
