Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Fondant but can be made using buttercream for the base icing.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure you dye enough fondant for the bottom tier as it will use AT LEAST TWICE as much as you think it will use...there is a lot of fondant on that bottom tier!

I have to say I can't think of any other person's group of creations on this or any other site where I've loved just about 100% of their work. You have an incredibly, tasteful and elegant eye in the creations of your cakes. You don't go way overboard as so many do. Many seem to forget that less can be more and after a certain point it ceases to add to the cake and starts to become tacky. I like your use of the real cameo on this cake. Believe it or not the use of real jewelry, in particular family pieces, especially in the UK, are becoming a major cake decorating trend. Personally, unless it were a small private reception where I felt VERY comfortable with ALL of the guests I would have to think long and hard about putting a valuable family jewelry piece on the cake. Necklaces are often used to form a border between tiers. It's a lovely look but I think I'll stick to the imitation pieces. What is nice is manufacturers have out now not only the edible imitation pearls in numerous sizes but now edible gems of all sorts in various shapes, colors, sizes and even in sheets are becoming much more available to all levels of cake decorators. A year or two ago if someone wanted an edible gem they had to produce it themself in a candy mold. Now, just about anything you want is available online somewhere. Just in the 3 three years I've been decorating cakes as a hobby I can't believe the advancements and the literally thousands of new products that have become available. Just about the only thing they haven't made extremely easy for the home decorator yet is the carving of the cakes. I can do a few simple things but I am worlds away from any carving like you'll see at the professional shops such as Charm City Cakes. Even the new products Wilton has out this spring is a tremendous help with creating figures out of the gumpast and fondant. I just love seeing what you do with all the Crafty classes you take. I hope to begin several myself soon. I'm looking forward to them.

I have no idea when you left this comment ( I was not alerted that I had any comments - craftsy needs to work on that problem - but I wanted to say Thank You for the kind words! It was so nice of you!! :). Lisa
