The top tier rests on an edible nougatine base, made of caramel and crushed almonds. The roses and ribbons are pastillage, a sugar paste that dries with a porcelain-like finish; the giant swirls are pulled sugar."

How in the heck did they cut that!? I picture it just falling over once any attempt was made to move it
