Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Dummy Cake, Rosgar roller, Marvelous Molds (Right Prime Swirl, Left Prime Swirl, Right Prime Flourish, Left Prime Flourish, Swirl Centrepiece) candles, wired crystals. Aged with a mixture of Edable Art Dove Grey dust and Squires Bridal White Satin dust (mixed with vodka to create a paint).

What are you most proud of? I liked how, by handpainting, I could 'age' the cake. I would, perhaps, next time 'age' less of the flat areas of the cake (and only paint the relief sections)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I bought the Rosgar Roller at Cake International, London. I have struggled to find it online since. It is an AMAZING embossing roller which gives you the angel relief pattern. Took a few practise runs, but very quick to use thereafter. You can the highlight, colour or antique as I did. Please see my other project 'square cherub' which was the practiserun for this cake and show a different coloured aging. Again, loving Chef Dominic's Marvelous Molds for the scroll. They are a little more expensive than many other molds but infinitely better, quicker and easier to use, and the results outshine other molds. I will be investing in more. Chef Dominic.... always happy to be a test guinnea pig for you, if you want any volunteers to try new molds??? ;o)
