Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Simple buttercream and coconut for grass effect. Fondant icing was used for the characters. What are you most proud of? This was the first cake where I attempted to model characters, so I was proud that they came out and were recognisable! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Grass effect is dyed buttercream and then dyed coconut sprinkled on top - very easy yet very effective.
