I made this for a wedding. Cake covered with fondant and decorated with Royal icing piping then painted with gold edible powder/dust/
What was your inspiration?
After watching the class Josh gave I was so inspired to do some piping. This is not my best skill (piping) so I usually shy away from cake with a lot of detail. I have a problem keeping my hand steady, for this reason I don't do as much. Josh really inspired me, so when the event planner gave me the freedom to create a beautiful cake for the wedding I jumped at the idea.
What are you most proud of?
I am most proud of the piping. although it was not the neatest I made note of what I would do differently. The design was a combination of a Toba Garrett pattern in one of her book and my little touch. The bride and groom loved the cake, and the planner said it was one of my best work for him.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
It is best to, I have found, to decorate each tier before assemble. I used parchment paper and pencil to transfer pattern. I used Josh's Royal Icing recipe but not too keen on it. I will in future use the recipe of Colette or Toba's.
