I made marshmallow fondant - then colored the different sections I rolled each section out into long tubes and then pushed them together and curved the whole thing into a circle shape. Then I just rolled it out with my roller and I used my Mat
This is the cake I entered into an edible books contest at our local library. Everything is hand made, hand painted, (I don't have an airbrush). All of the sugar pieces are fondant, modeling chocolate, gumpaste or a combination of two. No molds were used, I handed all. The only inedible parts are the strings in the harp, the sports under the tier fluffy is lying on and the straws in the mirror of erised and the quidditch goal.
The cake is 16 x 16. Plus I make all of my own buttercréme, fondant, gumpaste and modeling chocolate. The tastes are far superior to any pre-made, or marshmallow based sugar clays.[IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3220364/width/200/height/400[/IMG][IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3220365/width/200/height/400[/IMG][IMG][IMG][IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3220370/width/200/height/400[/IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

AHey everyone! I just joined the other day and this is my first post! I'm looking forward to finally connecting with other like minded people who share my passion. This cake is a very large sculpted Caterpillar from Alice in Wonderland, Tim Burton-style.
