What advice would you give someone starting this project? The decorations are all fondant with tylose, the melting snow effect is melted fondant (slightly cooled) and drizzled from a paper piping back. (easier to throw away than to waste a piping back). Once it all settled, I airbushed with pearl color to give it a nice shimmer. Hope you like it and thank you for looking.

You can use chocolate too if you like, it would work the same.

I used fondant and melted it with a little bit of water, just enough to get it almost water like but not too soft. Once I got the consistency I was looking for I put it in a rolled parchment paper and drizzled it around the cake. Once it all dried I airbrushed with sheer color for have that nice shimmery efect

Wonderul Cake! My daughter is a figure skating coach, I'm going to use this as inspiration for a cake for her! Lovely!
