Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Cake, icing, ganache, modeling chocolate, gumpaste, silver dust, Cricut Cutter, coreboard. I use my Kitchen Aid pasta attachment to roll out the gumpaste super thin for the cutter.

What are you most proud of? A picture of this cake was sent via text message and someone actually thought it was a real chocolate bar!!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Prepare your gumpaste ahead of time - be familiar with it and the Cricut cutter. Dont wait to practice - the Cricut Cutter can and will be finicky! As you can see - the cutter will cut awesome detail if you have the right gumpaste! NOTE: even though I've worked with my cutter & gumpaste many times i still had to re-cut the starburst multiple times until I finally just changed the font style. When you know it should be cutting good & it doesnt - try another tactic!! Freezing the rolled sheet of gumpaste is sometimes a must - especially for detail cuts. This can all be done days ahead if needed. Buy the extra large zip bags and the 12"x12" cutting mats fit right in them. I've heard of people flipping the design to get a more clean cut but I've never done it myself ( i always forget that feature).
