You need these:

( or any square and round cutters the right size)..plus:

I used ivory gumpaste rolled thin and then dry dusted with gold luster before cutting out the pieces. let it dry out a while so they don't stretch on you.

The daphne cutter is for the smallest floral looking thingy in the logo, and to cut the middles out of the sqaures. Then you use a round cuitter to cut the sides of each square to make the curved in sides. The lilac cutter is used to cut the middle out of the circles. The center dots are cut with a small round piping tip. The LV was hand piped in royal out of desperation ( need to think of a better way to do that one)


Give yourself ,um....lemme think..... 3 days to do this.... icon_razz.gificon_biggrin.gif

Holy cow! What an awesome cake! Your work is an inspiration!

renkly Posted 5 Jun 2007 , 7:03pm

You are the best a true inspiration to all of us. A photo editorial would be awesome.

I wanted to share with you Sugar Shack that I was at the Colette Peters class at the Wilton School the end of March. As we were working on our gumpaste flowers we started talking about CC and what a great site it is. Everyone mentioned "have you seen sugar shacks cakes".

So you are an inspiration to many many decorators.

I hope you business is very successful and that all your customers appreciate the art you create, "Edible art" (I also hope you get paid what you are worth!!!! icon_smile.gif

Thanks soooo much sharing!!!!!!
