Cage Cake

Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Buttercream frosting. Gum paste flowers. Brush embroider done on large peony. Royal Icing "cage" on bottom and top. What are you most proud of? The Cage! My first one broke so I had to redo the royal icing and added more meringue powder and the second cage was very strong! What advice would you give someone starting this project? This was just a practice cake for me so it took a few days between some of the steps. I would say to do it all within a few days so its all fresh in your head and the the frosting does not dry out!
