Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake I did this cake for the American Culinary Federation cake competition. The theme was Native Florida American Indian and the Everglades. I incorporated dropped string work and brushed embroidery techniques I learned in Craftsy classes Piping Buttercream Boaders and Vinatage Cake Modern Methods respectively. The cake topper is vintage Native American vase with native Indian embellishments carved into it. I used gumpaste to make the vase. I place 2nd in the competition. What are you most proud of? That I did pretty well for my very first cake competition. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Plan in advance and practice, practice practice.
