Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Cream Cheese filling, fondant, gum paste, pearl dust. What are you most proud of? That the caterers and everyone there setting up stopped what they were doing and just stared. Pure silence then oohs and ahhs. The caterers called me the next morning, a Sunday morning! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Structure structure structure. This cake was 42" tall without the topper! And bring extras I'd everything for touch ups.m ours were minimal because the structural integrity was really well thought out. It was transported in. 2 pieces. Even then, you tend to hold your breath until its all set. And most important, it's gotta taste as good as it looks. Guests went back for seconds and thirds!
