Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: I used the same techniques shown in this class to create the frills on this cake. The only exception is that I cut the frills on the bottom tier in semicircles in order to create a fan-shape effect throughout the tier. Also, the frills on the top tier were adhered perpendicular to the surface of the cake. This was inspired by the instructor.

What are you most proud of? I'm proud of the overall look of the cake, but I'm particularly happy with the crown. I piped it from scratch with royal icing. The blossoms on it are made out of gum paste.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Plan carefully and be patient. Try to experiment with different design elements, and it should be fine if your original design is slightly modified throughout the decorating process.
