What are you most proud of? I really loved the texture of the corn cob pipe. It was my first time playing around with fake wood and the gel paste and vodka gave me exactly what I was looking for. I'm also very happy with the subtle expression on Frosty's face. He has so few features, so getting each one as accurate as possible was essential.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Dowel your cake!!! Make sure everything is properly structured and supported. This was my first tall, sculpted cake and it had a ways to travel before getting to the birthday party. His head and hat were a bit too heavy for the body and made for a lot of touching up once we finally arrived.
