I am most proud of the facial features What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is an extremely IN-DEPTH tutorial and it is LONG. It is for decorators who have at least some experience in sculpting cakes and a basic understanding of decorating principles. I do not go over how to cover a cake, or how to ice. I tried to be a detailed as possible so I would not consider this a quick and easy sculpted cake. This is just my process and I am sure there are better/quicker ways of doing these things but this is mine. I hope you enjoy it <3
