Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Cake, cake & more cake...tons of Icing, rice crispie mix, chocolate, jolly rnachers, candy root beer barrels What are you most proud of? I liked my lanterns! lol What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure that if the cake needs to travel long distance - you have it stablized in all the right areas. When adding the rice crispie step up portions to the top, I didn't take that into account as added weight so needless to say the trip didn't help and well, luckily there was extra icing to add to the effect of the octopus breaking down the ship! Always take extra icing/fondant/decor to cover what the ride may do!
