What are you most proud of? My new son-in-law is lactose intolerant , and couldn't use any dairy in this cake. It tasted fabulous.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take some lessons in Craftsy. I really enjoyed that I could make a cake, and go back and review a section if I needed to.

What did you use to make the roses? I found the Swiss buttercream to be too soft!
