Do you sell this cake? No, just for fun

Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: 3x 10" 2 x 8" chocolate cakes stacked, carved and covered with ganache and marzipan before covering with Satinice. All flowers were made with gum paste.

What are you most proud of? That the finished item looked so realistic everyone kept asking me where the cake was. They thought they were looking at a flower decoration.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Give yourself at least 2 weeks to make all the flowers. You will also need to cover with a special fondant that does not rip.

I agree , your cakes are exactly the kind I love. I'm quite new to Cake Art but have always been able to pretty much turn my hand to anything creative. I have to say I think I have actually found my passion with sugar flowers. The instructions for the Antirrhinum manus (AKA Snapdragons) is Alan Dunn's Best of Floral Sugarcraft Page 102 Hope this helps
