Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Buttercream icing and real sunflowers. On a fruitcake. What are you most proud of? The scrollwork. Took me a month of practice to get that right. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Know something about fondant before attempting the ribbon. I was set to do my thing and would have ruined it but for my son-in-law, who unbeknownst to me, used to work for a baker and had handled fondant before! He rescued me by duct taping wax paper to the table surface to roll the fondant out on. Then slicing it to roll the fondant up on before applying it to the cake.
