Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: My two-tier cake was one round sponge cake with apricot jam and another round chocolate layer cake with strawberry jam. All covered with chocolate truffle and the with blue fondant. It was my brother's birthday and he loves the sea, sea animals and ships so I put it all on the cake and gave it to him as a present!

What are you most proud of? The ship and the octopus. I just love this purple baby octopus!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Pay attention with the rolled fondant and to assemble the two-tiers
