Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Madeira cake/cherry cake. Fondant. What are you most proud of? That I managed to match the indigo blue of the dress! And that little dalmatian - I'm not so fond of modelling figures but the puppy turned out kind of cute! What advice would you give someone starting this project? I think you end up with a unique and special cake for a child if you base the design on their party outfit.
