Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Wilton Sports ball pans, fondant, gum paste, color dust, vodka, paint brushes, blossom cutter, pearl dust, tooth picks, wooden skewer. What are you most proud of? This is my first attempt at painting on a cake. No stencil or markings were used. I painted leaves and stems free hand, and used blossom cutters to apply flowers to the cake. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Really not that difficult! Give it a try.
