What are you most proud of? It's hard to find something that I was proud of. The icing got too soft and I should have put it in the refrigerator for a while. I started at the top, working down and had trouble with the last rows.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I did use candy mold coloring, and it is a brilliant color. Keep the butter cream cold and be sure to gauge the amount of icing for each color. I had a hard time with the bottom rows because of the platter the cake was on and the icing starting softening. Practice.... Practice

WOW! What a great cake,my favorit color ever. Good luck on the wedding cake. One question, how long did it take you to make the ruffles?

I had all the colors already in pastry bags, so probably 20-25 mins.
