Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: My cousin wanted a garden themed mother's day cake. I made gumpaste gloves, seed packets, and gardening shovel. I then hand painted the details. The flowers were made from fondant and the banners were made with bamboo skewers. The flower pot was also a cake and all were filled with chocolate buttercream and covered in chocolate ganache and fondant.
