Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: I used a pasta roller to help me achieve a very thin layer of fondant. The radiant colors were almost like a burnt orange to a light cream orange. I started with the deep burnt orange first and pulled a few of that to mix with a white fondant to make the radiant colors. The peony is fondant and gumpaste mixed together; which I made ahead of time to let try for a minimum of 3 days. The bottom tier cake is a "double barrel" (two 8 inch x 4 inch) stacked and the top tier is a 6 inch x 4 inch high cake. I have a cake board and dowels in-between the two 8 inch cake for stability and again for the 6 inch cake.
