Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake cake, swiss meringue buttercream, my homemade fondant, candy clay , gumpaste, foam for base What are you most proud of? The whole thing! I started with a foam that I carved and glued, make and covered practice cakes and then made actual birthday cake! What advice would you give someone starting this project? I could have chosen many classes to publish this cake. I have learned so much. But Colette taught me to have fun, be whimsical and not take it soooo seriously :-) My advice.....plan, patience and smile alot!
