Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Gum paste, cake batter, Satin Ice fondant. What are you most proud of? Twenty five pounds of cake despite the fact that I could only cover the top part of this cake with fondant. The bottom was just too big for me to handle with fondant so I iced it with cream cheese.
