Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Mud cake filled and crumb coated with white choc ganache. Gum paste was used to make the flowers then chalks and luster dust to colour them. I then steamed the flowers.

Beautiful and soo clean looking....question? How did u make the gold colored ribbon? How did u get the color onto the ribbon or was it mixed into the gumpaste/fondant?

Hi, the ribbon is a gold fabric ribbon- not fondant. With the letters I painted them with gold luster dust & vodka.
