Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: I baked, filled, ganached and covered cake in fondant. I used Wilton's black color gel mixed with vodka. It is all free-hand painted, no stencil.

What are you most proud of? I enjoy drawing more than I do painting. I learned from myself that I can "draw paint" in a very similar way, like in shading and creating depth in a drawing.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Practice Practice! Find something you love...a fabric, card, even a diaper bag, and try to create it!

10 hours just for painting it? Or from start to finish? Absolutely inspiring by the way :)
