Q&A with OliviasBakery

Maryke Krohne asked:
I do not know how he did it, but I like the way he layered the shades of the green and the detail on that cake, just stunning. Buttercream icing is difficult for me and I really appreciate to see that one can do such great cakes with it. Well done!!!
OliviasBakery answered:
Hello Maryke! thank you thank you thank you!!! the buttercream on the base tier is also called "faux fondant". it's getting pretty crusty so I was able to use a regular imprint map to render the pattern.
