17. A lot longer than it does on "Cake Wars"! Made the gum paste rose at

the end of July. Figures took 6 to 8 hours each. Had to make 2 Beasts as first one was too top heavy.

How many hours of your life did you devote to that incredible work of art?

Not that it was a waste or anything. I imagine it's very therapeutic to put something like that together, and it keeps your mind off the orange asshole in the Oval Office.

WELLDONE!

All the characters around the cake look so much like the real thing from the movie. I'm in awe that you made this yourself and it looks exactly like real thing that I watched about 700 times with my kids when they were little! You are very talented. Congratulations!!

How long have you been creating these artistic pieces?
