Cake making!

I'm sampling cakes at the moment. But I wouldn't recommend eating anything!

This one above has been inspired from a large cake that I created last year for the Embroiderers Guild.
The guild celebrated 100 years together and I thought it would be a whimsical idea to create a cake made up of layers of techniques. I started on the layers incorporating distressed velvets, degummed cocoons, tye dyed cotton with foiling, burning and dissolving, acetone and acetate, wrapped threads and free-hand machine embroidery.
