Describe the cake, details and techniques: I love quilling and wanted to try it out on gum paste so I made the poppies, berries and foliage using the quilling technique.

The top two tiers were textured and painted to mimic the palette knife texture and the bottom tier was decorated with a Black fondant and painted using a metallic Blue which is also continued on to the second tier.
