Thanks ladies for your lovely words. I made this cake for my parish. Besides expressing my deep love for my faith, I love the opportunity to try new techniques... as I did here. I used many molds and I made the mold I used for the corpus in the crucifix myself. I love to explore and manipulate the different materials I work with. I mix pastillage and fondant in different proportion until I get the consistency and flexibility I need. Piping the red lines on white background was a real pain! I think it took me some 8-10 hours to finish the whole cake.... Worth every minute!


One of the features I was (and still am) most admiring is the red piping on the white background!  It has to be absolutely flawless and your's is perfect!
