Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake buttercream, cake, cake boards, burlap, fondant What are you most proud of? I was proud that even though it was technically a casual style cake, it really did look elegant. I was surprised at how much I liked it. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Cover your bottom board with burlap first. I also used chocolate brown fondant flower centers in the middle of the burlap flowers. I purchased the flowers from Hobby Lobby. Don't deliver this cake until the very last minute possible if your venue is outside.
