This is the first time I have tried the billowing technique. I made this cake for my Mom’s birthday. The bottom tier had the billows and buttons that I made with a mold and then hand painted with gold and copper. The top tier is covered in roses, leave and buttons. I covered it in fondant and then created stripes at the bottom with a little combinations of gold, copper, and silver pearl dust. Then went crazy putting on all the molded pieces I created. For the fondant, I used Wilton fondant and combined it with my white chocolate clay.
