Hi everyone, this was my first practice cake - chocolate sponge with chocolate buttercream crumb coating and homemade fondant icing with fondant accents.

Thanks everyone! the fondant was actually gelatine sugarpaste rather than MMF. it tastes lovely and is so easy to work with, tint and mould. im pretty pleased with my first attempt though im my worst critic! im dying to try a tiffany style 2 tier gift box cake now - hopefull il be able to stack them!
