Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Cake, Chocolate & Fondant. What are you most proud of? Making this cake in 4 hours (only 2 hours before the actual wedding) & not letting onto anyone that I'd made it. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just do it. Cake decorating isn't as hard as it looks. Fondant is almost like playing with play doh. Most people don't like to eat fondant (or sugar paste) but you can always make a marshmallow fondant that's really nice; there's plenty of recipes online. Make sure that you cover your cake with some icing to ensure that the crumbs get stuck before decorating. I'm just a SAHM who likes to make things & I usually find some information to get me started on a project online, so if I can do it anyone can. Go online & find inspiration & then work from there to make something unique that's all your own.
