Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Home made fondant, gum paste and pearls. First time I've ever used gum paste - second fondant cake I've ever made! Obviously I am not anywhere near all you lovely ladies who make stunning cakes, but you inspire me to continue with this marvelous craft.

What are you most proud of? I finished this cake while working and going to nursing school.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use your favorite cake recipe and make any gum-paste decorations DAYS in advance to let it dry. Also, make more than you think you need - I used all my bows!
