I use a very thin needle to scrape the clay in circular motions.  Here is my cake video tutorial, if you're interested: www.youtube.com/watch?v=EJbaYV…

You should offer people custom miniatures of their wedding cakes, I bet they would get snapped up!

Thank you so much!  This one took about 5-6 hours over two days, I think.  Sometimes I lose track of time while making mini clay food :giggle:

That is sooo pretty and incredibly realistic for such a tiny cake.  I particularly adore the way you have the darker edges on the sponge - that's true artisanship!
