Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake cake, fondant What advice would you give someone starting this project? 1. Use an 8" round cake pan for the base (3" deep) and a 6" round for the "baby bottom" portion, and let the cake dome up in the center while baking, dont level it, just smooth it. 2. Use 1 part brown to 2 parts orange to get this skin color, as shown in the photo. I never use skin colored food color, it just comes out weird.
