What are you most proud of? I used Jessica Harris' technique for the clean finish of the top tier and I think it worked really well! Also everyone commented on how delicate the rosettes were. The bride was really happy, so I'm happy!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? A pasta roller helps! I don't have a fancy motorised one, just a hand-cranked one, and it worked fine with the fondant rolled to about a number 5. Set aside a lot of time for the ruffles. I think it took me in the region of 8 hours to complete this tier (maybe I was doing something wrong!). I used toothpicks to hold open the ruffles and worked on other areas while they set. When they were about partially set I removed the toothpicks and then pushed the ruffles in slightly at the base to cover the holes.
