Type of item: Food
Cake, fondant, wafer paper, Lego set
What was your inspiration?
A pirate party for a kid who loves legos.
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.
