Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Chocolate cake recipe Homemade Buttercream Wilton Rolled Fondant Wilton Gumpaste

What are you most proud of? I am most proud of the skull. It is hand-made entirely from gumpaste. I rolled the gumpaste fairly thick and molded it around a clean snowglobe that had been covered with shortening. I then cut and molded the design in free-hand. When it was about halfway dry I removed it from the form so it would come off easily. The roses are also hand-made from black gumpaste, and dusted with red luster dust.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure you roll your gumpaste fairly thick for the skull, or it will tear easily when you take it off the form. Give yourself plenty of drying time and have fun :)
