Do you sell this cake? No, just for fun

What was your source for this recipe? Improvisational

Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: My homemade recipe for the best all butter pound cake, really moist and delish sans adornment even. Homemade pineapple filling, once again so yummy you could eat it like pineapple pudding all by itself. Homemade butter cream frosting with homemade Marshmallow Fondant to cover and for adornments. Hand sculpted decoration either hand-painted or airbrushed. Thinned corn syrup brushed on for that juicy glazed appearance. A really fun project originally made for a groom's cake but makes a great cake for any holiday occasion where a ham is traditionally part of the feast. I consider myself to be a cake "artist" and my favorite projects are somewhat less than classic designs with the opportunity to incorporate multiple decorating mediums.

What are you most proud of? I am most proud of this cake's realistic appearance and that the groom is STILL talking about this cake.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? One should study other cake designer's photos and of course pics of the genuine article, a baked ham! Don't hesitate to experiment with different mediums. I pride myself on making as much of the cake's elements edible. Last but not least, have fun!
