Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake fondant (sugarpaste), modelling chocolate, edible silver shimmer paint What are you most proud of? The fondant frills which give an impression of waves. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just follow Maggie Austen's straightforward instructions, it's easier than you think. It's a v. forgiving cake but spectacular if you have many layers of frills. Let the frills dry sufficiently before you turn the cake back up, this will ensure the frills stay up but soft enough to open them.
