What are you most proud of? my very first REAL buttercream cake (not just stopped after crumbcoating because running out of time). and it directly made it into CakeCentral Magazine ... soooo proud of that ;-)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? LISTEN TO JOSHUA!!! carefully. not once. watch the video over and over and over and over. and over.

I do not know how he did it, but I like the way he layered the shades of the green and the detail on that cake, just stunning. Buttercream icing is difficult for me and I really appreciate to see that one can do such great cakes with it. Well done!!!

Hello Maryke! thank you thank you thank you!!! the buttercream on the base tier is also called "faux fondant". it's getting pretty crusty so I was able to use a regular imprint map to render the pattern.
