What advice would you give someone starting this project?
It is a 3 day project. Day 1-Make/bake and freeze cakes. Day 2- make all fondant decorations- store in an air tight container, shortening and powdered sugar colored green for grass, crumb icing and cream cheese filling & esemble the cake and crumb ice it and put in fridge. Day 3- measure/weigh out the fondant needed to cover cake, color it and roll it out. (I use 'The Mat' from Sweetwise) cover the cake with the fondant, smooth it out and trim, add the decorations and piping gel to make the water effect, brown sugar for the sand
