Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake I enjoyed making this cake, but I wish I had more counter space to work on in my kitchen. It was challenging. What are you most proud of? I like how the marble effect worked so well for the bottom tier. I had to transport it in my trunk, so thank goodness it travelled well to the venue without any damage. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Prepare lots of space to work on this project. Prep everything ahead and test the thickness of your royal icing before you begin to use it. Mine was too thin.
