What are you most proud of? All of it, especially as this was my first attempt!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make plenty of extra edging pieces in Royal icing. These delicate pieces are piped individually and stuck on one at a time... there will be breakages ! I drew a pattern, photocopied it, so that I had 50 images to a sheet. This was then taped to a board & covered with cling film. The images were royal iced & left to dry. I left them on the boards until I was ready to apply them to the cake. The flowers & leaves were all made from tragacanth icing, individually wired & taped to form sprays. Although time consuming the finished effect was worth it. Allow yourself plenty of time to make them... the bonus is that they can be made well in advance & stored until needed.

That's amazing for 1st attempt.I've been decorating cakes for 15yrs now and it is a lovely cake.The only thing I would of done is ice the boards and put ribbon round as I think this always finishes a wedding cake.Well done on your 1st attempt.
