Project Description

Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Gum Paste Icing, Fondant Icing, White Vanilla cake, edible pearls, edible gold dust, press forms veiner forms for leaves and orchids, Pink, lime Green , and goldenrod petal colors What are you most proud of? Taking anything in one form and transporting some things of some form into something entirely different, and beautiful enhances pleasure in life. I'm proud and moved that I took James Roselles class in exotic orchids. It has enhanced my joy immensely. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just do it! All things come with practice and time even if you aren't clever. I have some experience in modeling polymer clay and designing jewelry. Both of those crafts contributed heavily to my early success.

Mary Jane Fedele asked:
I love this one!!! The leaves falling on the cake was a great idea.. Were thet leaf molds? Where did you purchase them if so?
Mona77401 answered:
Thank you MaryJane! The ivy leaf molds came with my first gum paste set of cutters from Wilton. I ordered them from Amazon.com years ago and then chickened out of useing them until this past few weeks! LOL
