Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake fondant, modeling chocolate, buttercream. What are you most proud of? The fish came out so much better than I anticipated. It was my first attempt at hand painting with food coloring. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I start out with a basic idea of what I want to accomplish. Then I let the project take shape into its final form naturally. This approach takes the pressure off perfection and I can make changes when I make mistakes.
