Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Sponge cake, fondant icing, Marzipan & food colouring. What are you most proud of? The colouring turned out very well, in my opinion x What advice would you give someone starting this project? Cover your sponge cake with marzipan to give a good base. The Scorpion on the Scorpio cake was modelled out of fondant & then coloured & placed on a plain-iced cake. The pebbles were shaped & placed on the cake prior to the fondant icing being put on the cake... they were the picked out in stone colours; the grass or reeds are just florists wire, cut & placed at angles.
