Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake several cakes - Lemon with lemon filling, marble with cotton candy flavored filling/frosting and red velvet with raspberry filling. Buttercream frosting, fondand ribbon and gumpaste flowers. They were meant to be gardenias, but as this was my first try I think I would put them in the fantasy flower category! What are you most proud of? The flowers turned out great, even if they aren't a true gardenia What advice would you give someone starting this project? Allow plenty of time to do the flowers. These took me at least a week to complete.
