Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Buttercream frosting, marshmallow fondant, chocolate cake, whipped cream and strawberry filling, white chocolate candy melts, luster dust, graham crackers, sanding sugar What are you most proud of? I LOVED the way the mermaid tails shimmered after using the luster dust! I used on the candies, too! I also "built" the tail out of cake crumbs (like cake pops) then layered scales over that to create the 3D effect! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Keep the house COOL or be ready for several trips to the freezer! Make fondant, frosting and candies ahead of time.
