Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: I used ready to roll icing to cover the cake, then used a cookie cutter for the star shapes. I made some cup cakes and used a cookie cutter to neaten the edges of the drums. I had no real technique as this was the first time I had ever done it before, but, deep breaths and a little confidence went a long way. I found the star shapes were excellent for covering a couple of tears I had . . . Oops!!
