    Wow, I cannot get over how perfect and beautiful his work is. My question is, how do you get to that level? I love this art and get my fair share of practice working as a cake decorator in a retail store. I know several techniques but I would still like to learn and accomplish much more in this industry. Culinary school does not teach this, what can I do to make it happen?

    Oh and I didn’t realize that was a cake if someone else didn’t mention the camera. He is Awesome!!!
