To see the all tutorial with photos click here CLASSIC PIANO TUTORIALBy ANA REMÍGIO This was my first attempt at making an elevated piano. I’m sure there may be alternative methods for doing these steps but this was the way that worked for me. 1 – First of all, you need to do the structure to hold the cake.

I have been asked several times for a tutorial on this, so I have made this video which is a collection of photos I took at the time and is by no means the best way to do one.

This was my first technical sugarpaste construction f...
