This was a cake that I made so that I could practice with sculpting technique. All of the pieces are edible. I made the fondant for the cake from scratch and it was a bit softer than it should have been. I also realize some of the things I should have done in different order, but I will know for next time! Seriously people, I need volunteers to eat these cakes (aside from my kids).
I was taking a class in technique with gum paste and fondant - this cake was my final project! (all edible) All of the leaves and flowers were hand painted with food coloring prior to being attached to the cake.
