What are you most proud of? The 18 year old graduate was so excited when I brought it to her - she loved it! I love to see the faces of people when the get one of my creations - its priceless!!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Best advice - don't wait until the last minute! Be patient with yourself and expect the unexpected. Make sketches of your final project, it really helps you prepare. Make the gumpaste items in advance so they will dry throughly and always make extras. Always be prepared to alter your design due to unforeseen circumstances (as I had to in this cake).

You did a great job! I'll bet your graduate had the nicest "special cake" of anyone else in the graduating class.
