Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Fondant, wire, floral tape


What are you most proud of? I rarely do sugar flowers, and have never done a piece of fruit in fondant before. I was very happy how it turned out - I used an actual plum and leaves and a small branch from my tree as a guide.


What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is my second attempt at doing frills as taught in Maggie Austin's class. I did try using a pasta machine to roll fondant out but had a lot of problems so ended up again just rolling the frills by hand. I think persevering with a pasta machine would perhaps have been better! I used leaf glaze on the plum to make it shiny - worked well!


Gorgeous. Such a rich color!
