Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Cake, fondant, modelling chocolate, sugar paste, colour dusts. What are you most proud of? a lot of the techniques I used in this cake were first timers for me... there was also a lot of experimenting going on LOL... I am so pleased that they all worked! I had to do the balustrade a couple of times to get it just right but by allowing myself a few weeks prep I was able to nut out any problems well in advance and everything came together with very little trouble. What advice would you give someone starting this project? this was so much fun to make ...dont be afraid to play and add your own twist. Make sure you allow yourself enough time to complete all the elements before you construct the cake.
