Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: The cake pleats, ribbons, and border are made of fondant, and the flowers are all gum paste. Flowers were shaded and highlighted using pearl and color dusts.

You did such neat decorating--no rough edges. I love the light green color too.

Thank you for the encouraging feedback Marsha. I truly enjoyed your class and learned many new tips and techniques. I love the look of pleats and drapes and am sure I will be using them often.

I love everything about this cake. I love the orange roses. They look perfect. I love the pleats around the cake. You can tell you take a lot of pride and patience in your cakes.

Thanks for your encouraging comments. I really liked the look of the pleats. The roses were not quite as dark as they appeared in the photo--guess I need to take a Craftsy photography class to get more proficient at that too :-)

I love the contrasting colors and the pleats.
