Q&A with Joshua John Russell

Bills2000 asked:
Theis is Beautiful, Joshua! Can you tell us how you incorporated the roses into your design? What are they made from?
Joshua John Russell answered:
They are just simple rolled roses that I placed on the cake when they were still pliable.....this way they kind of squish together.
cakedreamer asked:
Forgive me if this is a bit of a 'duh' question, but I am under the impression that the color work (the green, gold zipper teeth, etc. is done after this cake is stacked, right? I would like to see a tutorial on how to achieve this color-effect technique.
Joshua John Russell answered:
Yes!! I have a tutorial on my blog... here is a link....it's on a different cake but the technique is the same. http://thefashioncaker.blogspot.com/2012/11/so-couple-of-months-ago-i-was-asked-to.html
