Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Modelling paste (gum paste) for the figurines, flowers and assents. Sugar paste to cover the cake. The grass was piped using buttercream. What are you most proud of? I managed to complete it & the look on my hubby's face... What advice would you give someone starting this project? Believe in yourself. Give time for the paste to dry at each stage and make them in advance of the cake.
