Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Cake, fondant, gumpaste What are you most proud of? It was one of my first fondant cakes (5th or 6th I believe) and I was pretty happy with the outcome. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Definitely take Designer handbag class. You'll get much better results. I did not attempt to make the cake look realistic, because I never even thought it was possible. After taking this class I know I can make it look more realistic especially in terms of proportions.
