Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake 6 x 6 inch styrofoam cake dummy. Practice buttercream and practice fondant. Very cheap recipes, no extracts, no butter. I can make a lot of buttercream and marshmallow fondant with confection sugar, corn syrup, shortening, and generic marshmallows. What are you most proud of? That I didn't spend a lot of money. Now I can practice all kinds of designs. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Wear gloves please. It is so gross how much fondant is handled.
