Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Airbrush equipment Airbrush paint Wafer paper flowers, branch and dragonfly.Fondant covered with edible printer sheet, airbrush color, edible glitter and piping gel. What are you most proud of? This was my first project using wafer paper as the branch - it is completely hollow and self-supporting with branches floating in the air. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Sketching out a design first really helps me explore colors and flow, and break the project down into bite-sized chunks.

What you will need

  • Airbrush equipment Airbrush paint Wafer paper flowers
  • branch and dragonfly.Fondant covered with edible printer sheet
  • airbrush color
  • edible glitter and piping gel.

Q&A with Lisa Berczel

Jani Cakes asked:
Fantastic! Again how did you cover the cake, it looks like glass? The dragonfly is also fantastic, is that the same material as on the cake?
Lisa Berczel answered:
Thank you. The cake's glazed porcelain effect is fondant covered with an edible icing sheet that has a crackle pattern printed on it, which was then airbrushed with blue and brown gradients. This was *buttered* with clear piping gel, dredged with white edible glitter, and then slathered with another layer of piping gel. The dragonfly has airbrushed wafer paper wings mounted onto a black gum paste body.
