Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Lemon cake with Cabernet Blackberry buttercream covered with fondant and finished with a hand painted custom wine label

What are you most proud of? This was a challenge for me because the cake was quite large (although you can't tell in the picture) and the fondant was dark colored and unforgiving. It also took over 2 hours just to hand paint the label for the wine. I wish I had taken a detailed picture! :)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Get a buddy to help you when putting fondant on a vertical cake. You can try to putting the cake on its side to roll it, but when the shape is abnormal having a partner to help is just much easier.
