Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: The pineapples were made from RKTs shaped into domes, covered with modelling chocolate and then a layer of fondant. The leaves were made from gumpaste and the 'skin' was made using a silicon mold I made of a section of skin from a real pineapple. The lot was oversprayed with Wilton gold spray (which is really a bit lighter than I expected). It's a bit of a strange design, but the client didn't want anything else except choc buttercream, the words and the pineapple tops!

Thank you!! It felt like it took forever to get them haha I might have been a bit OCD - I remember wishing at the time that the client would've accepted fondant! =P
