What are you most proud of? I am most proud of the poinsettias. They are hand-crafted out of gumpaste. I used an upside-down cake pan covered in shortening to mold them properly for the corners, and once they were dry I placed them on the cake.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Give yourself plenty of time! Molding the rice crispy treats, covering them in fondant and layering the lights properly between each tier as it was being stacked on the pvc pipe takes quite awhile to get it right. I had to use little chunks of fondant to keep the wires flat so that the lights would stay where I wanted them. Make several extra poinsettias. I broke a few trying to move them onto the cake.
