Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Vanilla cake and coffee icing. Fondant, gum paste for the decorating bows. First real big cake, pretty happy, can't wait for the my next project! What are you most proud of? First time i use gum paste and i'm happy withe the result for the bows ;) What advice would you give someone starting this project? I live in Canada and we are using heater during winter. Our home is pretty warm and dry. I prefer adding more crisco to fondant to avoid it cracks.
