What are you most proud of? I am most proud of how well the gum-paste shoe and shopping bag cake came out. It was my second attempted at creating a shopping bag and everything worked out well in the end.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The only advice I can give for someone who wants to attempt this project is to make sure you have the design planned ahead. The gum-paste shoe should be done in steps and at least a week in advance to dry and assemble. The cake itself is a two-three day process. Make sure to cut out stencils from wax paper to cute out the layer of cakes.
