Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: This is my first project using my new edible ink printer - I used 'Icing Images' 8.5"x11" icing sheets. Cake, icing, fondant, tylose, designs to print, skewers/supports, coreboard, fondant tools, glass, hologram gold disco dust, rainbow disco dust, white edible glitter, gold highlighter dust, everclear (or vodka), extruding tool, contact paper to cover base.I like to use the tacky squares to secure the cake down. I cut one of the tiny squares into 4 strips to secure the glass to the base.

What are you most proud of? The edible icing sheet design turned out great for the first time ever printing and using it. I wish I would've had more time to add more detail but it still turned out great.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Follow the advise on the Craftsy Course and use extra internal support by using additional coreboard between half of the layers of cake. Be sure and make your handles & bow at least 2 days ahead for drying - I used MMF and added extra tylose to make it harden faster. I used panels to cover the sides of my cake as well but mainly because i used printed icing sheets glued onto rolled fondant. (I wish I would've gotten to that part of the course prior to me having to finish my own cake - it would've helped me).I used a piece of thread & needle to string the "beads". I felt it was easier to paint the beads with the gold dust after I strung them together.
