What are you most proud of? The beading took a long time to plan. I tried all manner of methods and had practise cake drums all over my studio where I had tried making molds, hand piping it, applique cutting and then beading, all sorts. The real beading is incredibly sparkly and edible crystals just weren't working. In the end I used edible silver pearls and then piped a border around the motif with royal icing and then hand painted the royal icing.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Cover a cake drum/board in sugarpaste and practise all the methods you can think of until you are happy with the result. The method I ended up using was the first one I tried but had discarded. With so many other options I could compare which I liked best and came back to this one.

I love how fluffy your frills are!!! Did you leave bands thicker than 1 inch before frilling them.
