Fondant covered cake, royal icing and gum paste
What was your inspiration?
I've taken the first lesson in Vintage Cakes. I love the look of brush embroidery. I chose the all over pattern for the cake based on the flower I had made from gum paste.
What are you most proud of?
My patience! Actually, the all over design didn't take as long as I thought it would. Starting out, I thought I'd be working forever, when in reality, it took maybe an hour. I learned a lot from each petal, that's for sure!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Don't use too much water and practice on cardboard first.
