What are you most proud of?
actually being able to assemble it in one piece long enough to get some pictures, lol.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I did a practice run of the top tier cake and removed it from the wax paper with no problems. While doing the final decorating, I had a more difficult time removing the top overhang from the paper which resulted in me going without. In hindsight, in the trial run I used a larger tip with the second pass over the pattern. I was still happy with the results and I think by practicing a few more times both with this method and the brush embroidery flowers I will be able to hone my skills. Also, I did not have a peony stamp so I just attached the flower and did without the brush embroidery directly on the cake.
