What are you most proud of? Twenty five pounds of cake despite the fact that I could only cover the top part of this cake with fondant. The bottom was just too big for me to handle with fondant so I iced it with cream cheese.

Gorgeous!! How did you get the sides so vertical and smooth please? Is it a sponge or fruit cake? Many thanks in advance!! x

Thank you. I obtained a smooth texture by buying a stainless steel 12" drywall knife/trowel from the local hardware store. My main trade when not doing cake decoration is in construction. So from time-to-time is background comes in handy during cake decorating challenges in my choice of tools I can use.

I use 'the mat' from sweet wise. It's very helpful when using fondant. Maybe you should give it a try sometime. www.sweetwise.com You did a great job and seemed to have overcome any difficulty.
