Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: I haven't had much luck stencilling with royal icing so wanted to try using a sponge loaded with edible paint. The effect wasn't too bad actually.

What are you most proud of? It's only a small thing, but I'm proud of the colour inside the orchid. My first attempt was horrendous!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make spare throats in case of breakages (or in my case, poor painting skills)

Hahaha I didn't get a chance to taste it myself (it was a gift to someone) but I'm assured it was delicious! It's 4 layers of the Brooklyn Blackout cake recipe from the Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook, sandwiching layers of peanut butter cream cheese frosting and home-made caramel sauce. It's based on a snickers bar =)
