Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Gum Paste, for orchids,stephanotis, leaves ect.. petal dusts, wire, white cake mix with extra vanilla added, fondant, molds, vodka, 6 inch cake pans,butter cream crumb coat, and a lot of nerve. Never made a fondant cake before, but the orchids were screaming for that sexy smooth texture that only fondant can create! Two part Cattelaya presses were used for the veining in the orchid petals.

MaryJane, Thank you very much for commenting on my first efforts! Every time I try a new creative outlet I seem to fall in love all over again. I was telling someone at work this week, "If you get bored go try something new. Creative outlets will send you to the moon and back. It isn't necessary to change life partners to put the zing back in your life. It's only necessary to reach out and experience what you are capable of!

I was wondering the same thing myself MaryJane! I do notice some flaws here and there so there is room for improvement but for first try out of the gate...pretty amazed by myself! I believe it's a reflection on the quality of training that I received here!
