Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Fondant, gel colors and vodka, black buttercream What are you most proud of? I had to fight this cake every step of the way, it just did not want to come together. I'm pretty amazed it worked out at all! I like how the background graduates from small pieces at the bottom to large at the top. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Allow yourself plenty of time. It's a lot of handpainting and hand piping.
