Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake buttercream, gumpaste, fondant What are you most proud of? The animals and the palm tree of course! That palm tree was finished literally 5 minutes before cake delivery. I tried about 5 different ways to make the leaves and I finally was able to get the wire to do what I wanted. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Do the animals and tree at least a 3 days in advance so they have time to dry.
