What are you most proud of? I like the cobblestone effect, and the wooden bits - made them by hand from my homemade fondant & they turned out well.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Give yourself plenty of fondant for covering an unusual shape - I didn't use enough & it did tear a little but covered it up ok. Not a big fan of store bought fondant personally. I gave it a go for my last two cakes as I was making 2 on the same day just to save time, but I find it doesn't look as smooth, taste as nice, and its very expensive! Next time I'd be more prepared to make my own fondant for the whole cake not just for decorations.
