Birch Tree Wedding Cake

Do you sell this cake? Yes Name of website or online shop I only sell locally Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake This 3 tier wedding cake is created with 5" tall cakes (sizes 4", 6", & 8"). Using fondant I cut circles to the same size as the tops of the cakes, inscribed rings, then colored with brown airbrush food coloring, let coloring dry, then place on the tops. The sides of the cakes were covered using panels. I rolled out the fondant to the approximate height and length (plus about 4" extra for overhang). Roll up the panels and cover the sides of the cake. Use 2"-3" of the overhang to give the look of peeling bark. Using gel colors (black & chocolate brown) and Everclear i painted on stripes to resemble Birch bark, a crumpled paper towel was used to sponge on the spots. The leaves are made out of gumpaste and dusted with petal dust (red, green, orange, yellow). The chipmunks are made out of modeling chocolate. I use homemade marshmallow fondant and for the oak leaf cutter I designed my own bending a 4" circle to shape.
