Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Gumpaste, royal icing, paint brush, water, What are you most proud of? It was my first time dragging pipe on a cake and my first time with brush embroidery so I was thrilled how this turned out. Some of the scroll work was stenciled on the cake and some of it I just freehanded - I feel my freehand was better than my stenciled work. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch the lessons. Joshua and Collette are so helpful and very informative. I watched their videos several times and then practiced on on dummy cakes before tackling a real cake.
