Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: I'm entering a cake contest using designer cake dummies. The pedestal stand and the 3-tier 'cake' are all styro. All were covered in fondant and then textured, embellished and hand-painted (many hours of hand-painting was done on this project). The berries and blooms are gum paste and were created after watching the tutorial. I cannot believe how realistic the blackberries look. So pleased! Even if I don't win a spot in the contest, I'm really happy with my result and now I can offer something new to my customers :)
