Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Gum paste flowers, royal icing, fondant. What are you most proud of? How well the flowers turned out and that I was able to hand draw the lace on the sides, it is the pattern of the flowers on her lace dress. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch the humidity. The flowers became very soft once the humidity level changed in our location. Same thing with the royal icing, it was a challenge. But a great experience and my sister loved it.
