Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: White modeling chocolate, deep chocolate batter, whipped bittersweet chocolate ganache filler for the layers, bittersweet glaze not poured but spread on the outside, colored fondant ribbons, white 5mm ediable bead, peony pedal cutters. Veiner end of dresden tool.

What are you most proud of? That the white chocolate pedal did not colaspe but stood and displayed well. Not quite like gum paste and not as crisp in the edges but it has a softer appeal.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't handle the pedals too much, wear some sort of plastic gloves. Have a picture or a real sample of the flower you wish to duplicate on hand when the project starts. Keep the kids from dipping their fingers into the batter bowl too.
