Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Sponge cakes, marzipan, fondant icing, edible pearls and flower paste. Various flower cutters. What are you most proud of? I think the stripy flowers, they are very distinctive . I have never used such a strong colour with white before so was a little concerned but it turned out really well. I tried to make it look interesting from all angles. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be careful not to get any black on the white icing or visa versa. Always clear away one colour before using another and make sure all traces of the previous colour are removed. Make up your flowers in advance which saves time on the day of decorating.
