Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Cake, 2 cupcakes, fondant, wire, root beer bottle, cardboard rounds What are you most proud of? The carving. This started as a stack of 8" rounds, 5 of them I think, and I carved it all down. I also did this after an all-nighter working on another cake, and I had been up about 30 hours by the time I started it! Oops, bad scheduling. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Chill the cake really thoroughly before carving, and use a dense recipe that can hold up to that much stress.
