Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Cake, Icing, modeling chocolate, gumpaste What are you most proud of? To be honest I loved how my fish scales turned out! I brushed a little edible dust on each one, a different shade for it to look realistic, and thought it turned out pretty well. What advice would you give someone starting this project? measure your fish head & tail compared to your cake first - I actually ended up having to re-do the head because I didn't keep up with the size comparison as I went along like I typically do....was not happy with myself when I went to put it on and it was huge! Oops - measue twice...craft one!
