Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Fondant and candy clay What are you most proud of? I'm pretty proud of the whole thing. The board book cookie cake topper came out better than I hoped for, and the animals were so bright and fun. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I layered the candy clay on the wax paper to give a little bit of depth to the animals. Just remember, you have the mirror your pieces to make sure they face the right way when you put them on the cake (my 80 snake was backwards at first).
