Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake This cake was for the anniversary of a wonderful Southern couple, hence the red velvet cake interior and Southern Magnolia flower on top. All flowers are made of gumpaste. What are you most proud of? My fondant work was pretty smooth on this cake. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make the flowers in advance so you can relax and enjoy arranging them when it's time to decorate the cake.
