Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Purchased Gum Paste Roses, cake, icing What are you most proud of? I like the simplicity of the Lazy Cake. This is definantly something any decorator could do in a hurry. With some adjustments someone who dosn't decorate could even do this. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Look for the gum paste roses online. If you have never decorated before this is the cake for you. Bake your cane and let it cool. Frost smooth with buttercream or a store bought frosting. If you don't want to attempt the shells, use red M&M's around the bottom and top. Put your roses on and you have a cake. I have seen at some stores red gum-balls. That could be used too just as easily.
