Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: I had some boiling hot water on the stove and I dipped my spatula in the water, dried the spatula and used it to smooth out the imperfections in the Buttercream along with a fondant smoother.

What are you most proud of? I didn't freak out when the top tier was damaged in the commute. I had put the 6 in top tier on skid free shelf liner in an 8 in cake pan. Then I lined the cake box with skid free shelf liner and placed the cake in the box. The cake board remained in place but the cake slid off the cake board. I had to pray and I was calmed only through prayer. Then I was able to repair the cake. Thank God!!!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Always arrive early at a wedding, pack a repair kit (extra Buttercream Frosting etc) in case of mishaps.

is the blue airbrushed? The picture almost makes it look like there are dark spots. Pretty choice

No, it was not airbrushed. It maybe the shadow of the tree branches and/or leaves.
