Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: I used Wilton Color gels and vodka to free hand paint flowers.

What are you most proud of? It came out just as I had it in my head and heart :)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I think could easily be made into a stencil.

This cake is so beautiful. The shading is just amazing. Did you do tests with watercolors on paper first to achieve the design and style?

Thank you! I always roll out a piece of fondant and do several patches of color. I then let that dry and if I want to add dust (like on flowers), I test those new colors overtop. This way I know what I like. Make sure you make up lots of whatever color if you are not painting in one stretch, this way you can add a little vodka to it and use it again and not run out :)
