Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: 6" and 8" cake rounds, fondant, modelling chocolate, button molds.

What are you most proud of? I made my own button molds and think they look really cute. I also like the colours, the little orange and green 'house' motifs (which I followed around the back of the cake) and the effect on the bottom tier that I got by using a sponge. The ropes were really fiddly to prop up but I think they worked out really well in the end. I feel like I successfully incorporated quite a few different elements from the program - the ripped up cardboard effect, the bright funky colours, the 'mat' the owls are sitting on is actually a sort of reproduction of the green and yellow window, I like the cute buttons, ropes, and that overall sort of stitched-together scrapbooked look.
