Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: This cake was a month in the making, after I finished my Wilton Method Course 4 I was determined to make a cake using the the Gum Paste Flowers that I had learned in class. Being St.Patrick's Day I chose to create the cake around a Celtic Harp but after searching far and wide there were no Harp molds to be found so I got a little creative and used the skills I had learned in my Wilton Courses and made my own harp. I displayed the cake on the 15th at our St.Patrick's Party and everyone was amazed...and yes, I saved the harp! I was asked to use butter cream instead of fondant so the only course that is not represented on this cake is Course 3
What are you most proud of? The Harp, I could not find one so I got inventive and made one with royal icing. I found a picture and placed it under parchment paper and traced it with the royal icing, I did a reverse image and joined the back and front together again with royal icing so there would be stability to the piece. I let it set then sprayed it with Wilton gold icing Mist.
