Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Cake, fondant, wafer paper, Lego set

What are you most proud of? The map. I drew it free-hand on wafer paper. I thought it turned out pretty good, which is why I photographed it before wrapping the cake with it.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Know your materials. I had no idea wafer paper shrunk after getting moist/wet. Had I known, I would have overlapped my ends. It is helpful to know how your materials react to certain conditions.

What a great cake! You draw really well. Did you use food-safe markers on the wafer paper?

Thank you! I did use food-safe markers, made by Americolor. I should give some proper credit, the drawings were not my idea. I found a "Pin the Treasure on the Map" game at a local party store, and used the map as my inspiration for the drawings. I did free-hand it, but shouldn't take credit for the creativity! :) Thanks for the compliments!

Do you have a recipe for the cake? What is on the top?

I'm not sure what you mean by recipe, but on top is crushed graham crackers mixed with brown sugar, which I put over buttercream icing to make stick and look like sand. Let me know what you are referring to as far as recipe, and I can answer that question a little better. Thanks!
