Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Floral wire, gumpaste in various colors, fondant, a pasta machine to roll out my gumpaste, a styrofoam cake dummy for the top tier, coconut cake for the second tier, and chocolate cake for the bottom tier. What are you most proud of? I am very proud of how the topper came out because I had never made a human figure with gumpaste before. I am also proud of the fact that it was stable enough to last a 6 hour car ride to Tahoe lol. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Definitely take your time. It's much easier to work when the previous part is dry.
