|Here are some details about my project:|
|Type||3 or more Tiers|
|Material||Buttercream, Royal Icing, Gum Paste, Fondant|
Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Sugar paste;Nicholas lodge's flower paste. I usually use the flower paste recipe in his book but I loved the consistency of the one here on the crafsty platform . Butter cream, dowels cake drums . Lustre gold, acetate with the acetate I noticed it was to thin and so the pins I used to stick the patterns made the acetate sheet lift up therefore it wasn't flat against the dummy so when the cage dried the pins made it crack easily so I would stick to wax paper to alleviate that problem.
What are you most proud of? That I managed to deliver the cake in 1 piece. I was weary of the cage breaking .
What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be patient especially with the brush embroidery as Colette said don't rush. With the cage I will say make two of everything like Colette Peters said because the cage is very delicate and they do break I had practiced before and saw how fragile it was I was tempted to use an airbrush to paint the cage but after heeding to Colette Peters advice about the airbrush colors being water based I decided against it and just brushed it on and that was quite easy so I would say listen to every word Colette Peters says practice! practice!
