I was rapt with the result of this cake. The four little characters were difficult - hence the higher price of the cake - but I was pleased with the end result, especially the little Toto sitting on Dorothy's lap. The cake is covered in buttercream icing, except for the yellow brick road, which is fondant icing, dusted with a gold glitter. The Emerald City is also fondant and has been heavily covered in gold and emerald glitter. I especially loved the grass (thanks to my daughter Anna for that icing tip) with the varying sizes of poppies. This is a beautiful cake with a definite 'wow' factor.
