Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Cake, royal icing, butter-cream, fondant, luster dusts, gum paste. What are you most proud of? I finished it and delivered in one piece LOL.. What advice would you give someone starting this project? take your time constructing the cage and allow plenty of time to play especially if you have not tried this technique before. If you have not taken a class on craftsy yet you are missing out! they are so awesome and a great way to learn if you dont have access to the great teachers available at an even greater price!
