Do you sell this cake? Yes on

Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: The cake is covered in marshmallow fondant. I made it watching Amazing Mikes on line course- Really Great. I learnt a lot but next time I make it I'll cover it with ganache not buttercream and I'll use a firmer cake than the vanilla sponge inside. Having a firmer cake to work with (like Mike had said- should have listen ha ha) would have been much easier to work with. on

What are you most proud of? Learning something new on

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure you have a firm cake. Also I made the cake to big to fit into a fridge to chill...check first or use chocolate ganache not butter cream. on

Thanks Amazing Mike I really enjoyed your class. Sadly it take me way longer than 6 hours to make this cake... I was more on the 3 day mark but I guess that's why you amazing

Your cake is brilliant. The one I made took me more like 3-4 days to make. But it was good fun!

hi Julie I don't mind giving you the cake recipe I use email me and I will send it to you. I think a firmer cake would be easier to work with. It was a little soft but with ganache or been able to put it in the fridge while working on it would help keep it firm. I wasn't able to put it in the fridge
