Cake w/ sponge paint, puff border, drape

Project Description

Do you sell this cake? No, just for fun Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake I made this cake while taking Colette's awesome 5 day Professional Cake Decorating course at the Wilton School. Though I have been decorating cakes for some time I learned a tremendous amount during that time. I used sponge painting techniques taught in this course for the first time on this cake, and utilized the puff border which I learned while taking her craftsy course "A Piece of Cake", then fine tuned my skills at using a fondant drape which is also from that course. Many thanks to Colette for being such an inspiration and wonderful instructor!
