Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Cake, Icing, fondant, gumpaste, melting candies What are you most proud of? I have to say the entire cake came out exactly the way I had envisioned it in my head, down to the little candle; although, if I had taken a better look before delivering it...I would have rubbed cocoa on the wick to go along with showing that it melted. I do always like doing cake "books" to, the icing of the pages make them look real and I always get a kick out of that ha ha..oh the critiques the artist finds! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Sometimes..a few little things are really all the subject matter needs. There are cakes out there that don't need a ton of neat things on them to really get the point of your design across. Take a step back and look at your project, walk into another room if you have to - the designing blinders will come off at some point and tell you when to stop adding to the cake....listen to them when this happens because you can save time, money, & headaches if you finally know when to stop.
