Thank you for posting this; I've always wondered how you make your amazing cakes. It looks both easier than I thought and, like ~mystiic143 said, easier than it probably is.

Both the process and final result are amazing! It's so detailed! :D

I think the hardest part is work with the icing... Sugar paste dries very quick so you have to work fast.
Thank you so much for the comment. :hug:

Oh, so it's like the opposite of working with paint, which can never dry fast *enough*. I guess the grass really is greener on the other side ^^;

And you're welcome :D
