Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Cake, fondant, gumpaste, modeling chocolate, royal icing. What are you most proud of? Strangely enough...I'm most proud of the patterned piping on the top tier. I designed the pattern myself and have never really done any piping before. So, I was pleased with how it came out. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time. Every element in this cake is significantly difficult. And, rushing through it is not an option.
