Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: I recently bought a Silhouette Cameo and wanted to see if I could use it to design my own custom-made stencils and if so, how intricately a cut could translate onto cake. I used my friend's housewarming as a blank canvas and, though it's a bit busy because I was trying out so much, most of what I attempted came together as I hoped.

What are you most proud of? The bird house and owls actually - the owls were a last minute addition.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I used melted gumpaste/fondant (mixed with a tiny bit of warm water) as glue for the pieces of the birdhouse. It dries like cement. Make the pieces far ahead of time to give them a good chance to set rock hard.
