Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Fondant, Gum paste, buttercream icing, white cake, dental floss, floral wire, floral tape, dusting powder, molding chocolate. What are you most proud of? I'm proud of the whole cake, but my husband says I'm a little anal and can always find fault with my projects. What advice would you give someone starting this project? As with anything with gum paste accessories, plan ahead. I put some tylose in the fondant for the box so it would be more sturdy.
