Mother in Law's basket of flowers

Do you sell this cake? No, just for fun Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake flowers are made with 50/50 fondant/gumpaste using petal dust to enhance them. The basket is fondant with tylose added. I used a roller for the basket weave look & then painted with various shades of natural colors. Handles are gumpaste & fondant with a wire running thru it to keep its height & shape. I used an extruder with a rope tip & rolled it to get the twisted look. I covered the cake with a dark chocolate ganache for a dirt look.
