Do you sell this cake? No, just for fun on

Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: It is a lemon butter cake iced in raspberry Swiss butter cream and then covered in fondant. The bamboo is made of fondant. The orchids are made of gum paste. I used a lot of the techniques that I have learned from the Craftsy classes. on

What are you most proud of? How real it looks on
