What advice would you give someone starting this project? Although I like using fondant to make cakes because they look really beautiful, I think combining it with modelling chocolate is really useful. I don't love how fondant tastes and I always see people leaving it on their plates, they don't really eat it. When I was thinking of making this cake I did not want to do all the trimmings in fondant , they are many and I thought it would overpower the taste of the cake. I saw this course and it was perfect because i then had the option of using modelling chocolate instead that tastes do much better than fondant. All the trimmings are made out of modelling chocolate ( lettuce, cheese, onion & tomatoes) . The bun is and burger are covered with fondant . The whole burger is hand painted with dust powders. I am new at this art of cake decorating and I had no idea modelling chocolate existed. I loved it!
