Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Cake is an 8x8 inch square cake (four 2-in stacked layers). I used the Chocolate Sour Cake recipe found at "My Cake School", covered in chocolate ganache (recipe also at same website) and covered in fondant "pixel" squares.

What are you most proud of? I've always been scared of working with fondant! I came out better than I expected and received lots of positive "WOWS" at the party.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Mainly plan ahead and do the cake in stages. For example, 1) prepare ganache or frosting, 2) prepare and color fondant, 3) bake cake, 4) frost cake 5) cut out pixel squares and prepare the pattern, 6) place fondant pixel square on cake. Also, I would recommend making a smaller cake such as 6 in; this would decrease number of pixel squares needed.
