Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Styrofoam dummy cakes. 2 different cake recipies. Buttercream, fondant and gumpaste. Cake decorating tools. What are you most proud of? It's hard to cite just one thing. I tried the billow tufting for the first time and am very happy with the way it turned out. I sculpted the bottom, my first major attempt at doing this. The flowers are no particular type, I just "winged" them and was pleased with how delicate and soft they turned out. I guess I am most proud of how I was able to meet this challenge that I gave myself. It is by far the most complicated cake I have made to date. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Give yourself LOTS of time. I put this together, with no assistance, over a period of 10 days, taking my time to perfect the details. I worked approximately 6 to 8 hours each day.
