Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Cherry chip cake mix, buttercream frosting and marshmallow fondant.

What are you most proud of? That it came out cute. Won "Simply Elegant" and "Best Choice Theme" awards.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It was really fun working with the fondant (kind of like playing with play dough). Plan out your pattern (my quilt was kind of crooked on the bed). It was really fun to do, but I was in a hurry and it is a little sloppy for my usual perfectionism. You don't need a special occasion for a cake, have fun and experiment so when that special occasion comes up it will be easier (and less stressful of course).

Love it! This would be perfect for our quilt guild party!

The one I modeled this idea on was a tumbling block. I didn't have time to do all those pieces so just did the squares. It came out really nice (and yummy too).
