Here are some details about my project:

Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Madeira cake, fondant, edible glitter, Royal Icing, cake wires and food grade plastic straws to insert the wires into cake.


What are you most proud of? This cake was part of a co-ordinated Movie Night party for my grand daughter's 11th birthday - I also made popcorn cupcakes with themed toppers, caramel popcorn and chocolate Oscars. This was the first time I have tackled a project like this - a lot of fun. The popcorn box on top of the second tier was also a small cake - I used an actual popcorn box as a template for the fondant covering and to trim the cake into a box shape.


What advice would you give someone starting this project? There is a lot of inspiration available on the net to support cake design and it is worth spending a bit of time doing research to come up with co-ordinated ideas for a special party.
