Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Chocolate Cake, Chocolate Ganache, Dowels, Fondant, Gumpaste, Edible gold paint. What are you most proud of? I'm really happy with the details of this cake, just not the monogram part. I used a stencil but I gave my cake 'movement' so the stencil didn't sit flat against the cake and was quite messy, think I might just ditch the stencil all together next time and just sit there for days hand painting it...Oh dear... What advice would you give someone starting this project? It's not the difficulty but more the time consumption of this project, make sure you allow enough time to do all the details and it's going to be a "piece of cake" HA!!
