Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake homemade marshmallow fondant for pearls, gumpaste for flowers, white, chocolate and strawberry layers of cake What are you most proud of? That it stayed standing while I transported it! It was 6 layers tall with no support in between (the recipient wanted the effect of the 3 different colors of cake layers stacked when cut) Also, that I have no training, I simply get an idea and create it. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use 1/2 inch pvc to support the cake. The stripes are fondant on buttercream and the height of the cake requires that the cake not sit long or it could start to settle......give yourself plenty of time for decorating and do not rush yourself!
