Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Gum paste/ plastic icing with tylose; Dresden / veining tool; A sharp knife ( exacto / or Wusthof silver point paring knife); Toothpicks/ skewers/ wires for support; Edible ink marker - black; Wooden handle woodwork tool - curve for eyebrow detail of Eeyore in particular; Edible glue ( tylose+ water); Royal icing for secure gluing; Supports to hold up Tigger's arms while drying (I use skewers with balls of icing on the end and stick these into the styrofoam base to allow his hands to rest on the balls.)

What are you most proud of? The likeness of the figurines

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time and be patient. It takes a long time to get the right look!

I doubt a Disney professional artist could do any better. Even though I'm over 50 I am still a devout Pooh lover. In fact, sometimes it makes me sad he's become so popular now as when I first liked Pooh you never found items with Winnie-the-Pooh any place in the states for sale outside of Sears and their baby department. When you did find something it was VERY special to you. But I guess if the rest of the world hadn't discovered Pooh finally I wouldn't now have so many nice things. Even though an excellent lifelong baker I only became interested in doing cake decorating myself about 3 years ago. Now being able to complete a Pooh cake the quality of yours is on my wish list. I'm assuming you later placed these figures on a cake to be enjoyed by all. In all honesty, if this is your skill level, then perhaps YOU should have some tutorials available online showing how you make some of your items. All of the other people online all began at home or in a shop and did one project at a time online. Since our two countries are pretty much on opposite sides of the globe it's the only way many of us will ever see more of your work. Take care and keep posting these WONDERFUL items on Craftsy.

Hello. O my goodness, I only saw this comment now. What lovely words, I really appreciate it! I will be posting a new cake soon, of baby pooh, Eeyore and tigger! Keep an eye out for it! Thank you so much for this comment. I have recently started a blog... I have a few basic step by steps of whole cake decorating, so far, but in the future there will be step by steps on figurines where I hope to share my passion for perfection with all who are interested! I also love Winnie the Pooh and I always feel quite sad to let these particular cakes go! Thank you, really. Your comment made my day! Xxx

I love this cake. Your detail is amazing. I am going to attempt to scuplt pooh bear to put on my daughter's 2nd birthday cake this weekend. She loves pooh and has informed me that she is going to have a honey pot cake. I am still in the learning stages and haven't made figures yet.
