Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: The top 3 tiers are covered with fondant and decorated with fondant branches and leaves. the larger leaves were made with gum paste and air brushed to create depth of color. The bottom tier was decorated using a combination of royal icing and fondant, then air brushed to create the look of real bark!

What are you most proud of? How realistic the bottom tier looks :)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Try first with a smaller cake, even a single tier. And create the decorative pieces ahead of time and allow them to dry completely.
