I used tapered rods of rolled fondant to give the carriage hood dimension. I used sugar cookies for the wheels. This cake wasn't too hard to do as it was a single tier with a very easy basket weave design. I really liked making the small silk flower posy.
I might have used sugar flowers if I had been any good at piping them. I'm not, sad to say. Can't pipe a buttercream rose to save my life. They all turn out kind of sad looking. I hate it when someone asks for them. Thankfully I could get away without making any on this cake.
