What are you most proud of? Tackling such a difficult project. I ran into several problems, but in the end, I managed to pull it all together with some creativity to get a beautiful result. Everyone loved the cake and it tasted as delicious as it looked! The guest of honor felt so special to have such a lovely custom cake made just for her :-)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I made this cake over a 3-4 day period. Maybe someone more skilled could do it faster, but there were many steps from making the actual cake, the filling, the frosting, the flower and the white chocolate cameos, then putting it all together. You have to have a lot of patience. I enjoyed creating this because it was for a very special occasion and no ordinary cake would do!
