What was your inspiration?
I watched the Vintage Cakes Modern Methods and Modern Piping Lessons and used those skills to create this sweet 16 cake. Client wanted something sophisticated and elegant and not blingy like sweet 16 cakes usually are.
What are you most proud of?
It was my first time dragging pipe on a cake and my first time with brush embroidery so I was thrilled how this turned out. Some of the scroll work was stenciled on the cake and some of it I just freehanded - I feel my freehand was better than my stenciled work.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Watch the lessons. Joshua and Collette are so helpful and very informative. I watched their videos several times and then practiced on on dummy cakes before tackling a real cake.
