What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take Alice Medrich course. I know everybody love to learn about cake decorating, but having a good chocolate making skill is very important too. In my restaurant, about 70% of customers prefer chocolate cake for dessert. And I haven't seen a customer refuses a piece of chocolate cake if I bring it in front of them.

Thank you very much, it was delicious. My cream cheese frosting is very easy to make. 2 (8 oz) cream cheese, room temp. 1/2 cup butter, room temp. 2 cups sifted confectioners sugar. and 1 tsp vanilla.....In a medium bowl, cream together cream cheese and butter until creamy, slowly stir in the confectioners sugar, add vanilla extract at the end. To make it flawless, I first put the cake in a fridge overnight, then I crumb coat the cake and put it in a freeze for 15 mins and frost the cake again. I hope you'll find this helpful.
