Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake American buttercream, edible image, modeling chocolate What are you most proud of? I've been very happy with the freestanding letters I created for this and my first modeling chocolate cake. I think they add a really nice touch. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't make your border pieces as thin as I did. They were a little hard to handle. But other than that, this is a really great medium for decorative pieces.
