Talavera tile wedding cake
This is my first competition piece. I definitely challenged myself with this. It has its flaws but it was the best of what I could do and gives me a lot more room for where i know I need to improve. I felt pretty good about it. For this cake, I learned how to make gumpaste flowers. The tiles are fondant, all pieces were cut with either a heart or a circle cutter and then recut to get the curves and angles to match. The bowl is poured sugar into a mold (top of a cupcake mold) and then placed a bowl, that was wrapped in foil and greased, on top of the poured sugar to shape the inside of the bowl.
