I am new at posting here and accidently posted a picture meant for the cake contest in a couple other places. I guess I pressed the send button before reading the directions. The cake was called "Tribute to Grandmother"

I agree we all make mistakes at one time or another, but on another thread one person is getting reamed for making one in the Mother's Day Contest. Go figure! Janice

I actually posted my cake in the contest and then posted it again in the celebrations section. After some thought I emailed Jackie to remove it from the celebration section. I'm only saying this because I personally felt guilty that I may get comments before the contest was over. I would have loved any comments though cuz it was my first real try at basketweave (I've only practiced on wax paper before).

I hope I can say this ....There are some awesome cakes! As a self taught newbie and not having the experience as some, I thought I'd try entering anyway

Wow!! Your cake is beautiful! I looks fake it's so perfect! Did you do the cocoa painting yourself? And what is pastillage? (sp?)

Just lovely--a true work of art!

Pastillage is a sort of medium like gumpaste but only stronger. It is made with gelatin, water, and powdered sugar. The recipe I use is in the cake bible. The cake is covered in fondant and that is why it looks so smooth. Do you think I could get a buttercream that smooth? No way! It really only took me one night and part of a day to do. Fondant is so fast. The bows had to dry overnight and the cocoa painting was done ahead of time. The rest was done right on the cake with food markers and air brush coloring (dries faster). The board was covered in fondant.

I had meant to only post in the contest. I asked for the site moderator to delete the other post.

LOL! I did the exact same thing yesterday.
I posted my marzipan animals in the bday cake section because it defaults to that when I went to upload!
