Do you sell this cake? No, just for fun Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake AIl of the materials, processes, and techniques used were from Elisa Strauss' sculpted purse cake class and her book, Confetti Cakes. What are you most proud of? How sturdy this cake is due to Elisa's doweling method. I used a cake mix the day before instead of the recommended recipe, and it fell apart! I did the cake over using was Elisa's recipe and the cake was so sturdy!
