Q&A with craftsybea

mothersierra asked:
What size are the cake tiers? Are the mustache, number, tie and buttons made from fondant? You are very talented thank you for posting.
craftsybea answered:
Hi Mothersierra. Thanks for your comment. The bottom tier is a 6" and the top is 4". All the decorations are cut out of a mix of 70% modeling chocolate and 30% fondant. I noticed the higher the modeling chocolate ratio the cleaner the cuts. Also, I pass the mix at a 4 in my pasta machine. The bow is made using Jessica Harris bow template from her class "Clean and Simple cake design". For the buttons I cut the circles and then used the #1 decorating tip to punch the little holes in them. Hope this helps.
