Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Cake, icing, fondant, mini oreo cookies, waffer cookie straws & a G.I.Joe (keepsake toy) What are you most proud of? I really liked the entire thing when it was all said and done - really fun one! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Sometimes you can save money mby making things your self (i.e. cookies, fondant, icing) BUT, there are times that just work out better if you can find the exact item you need (lets say down the cookie isle) and you just buy them instead of using up several hours of the day try to make it yourself.....not awlways, but in some cases wigh your options with your time/money.
