Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Fondant, gumpaste, fabric ribbon What are you most proud of? I think the layered letters add a real sense of dimension to the cake. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Know your materials. I used gumpaste for the ears and the hairbow, because I needed a material that would get hard enough to stand. Fondant will harden, but the weight would have still cause d it to collapse.
