What are you most proud of? I love the whole thing. I only wish that I had made the fairy out of gumpaste, but I didn't have the time. Plus, it doubled as a gift for Selena. It's difficult to see in the photos, but there are tiny little ladybugs scattered around the cake. The tree stump is hand painted, and there are exactly 16 rings on the top. I used my Cricut Cake machine to cut out the butterflies, but the rest of the characters and the mushrooms are hand crafted out of gumpaste and fondant. The flowers and vines are hand made from gumpaste as well. I sponged the bottom cake with royal icing to give it a mossy forest floor appearance. The mushrooms have popsicle stick centers.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have fun with it! I really enjoyed making this one and the birthday girl loved it! :)
