I need some assistance. My husband is an amateur photographer....and he always complains that I'm making cakes for everyone else and not him. His birthday is June 13 so I wanted to make a specia cake. Any ideas?

Thanks!

well, i made a graduation cake for a photography major. I made a camera out of fondant to put on the cake. Then i made a spray of stars from fondant to look sort of like a flash-type thing. You can see it in my photos if you'd like. Another thing that you can do it buttercream transfers. They work great and you can do one of a camera, one of a flash, and maybe even little character pictures ect. good luck

Oh Lisa, you and your links! I've just spent an hour and a half looking at the cakes on David's blog, he is something else...I loved reading all of his comments, and his cakes are pretty good too! vj

He is really talented! He's been posting more cookies than cakes lately though. Did you see those? Amazing!

You're welcome! We have a links page. It's a tab/link up at the top of the page. I think we should start submitting them too. Great idea thumbs_up.gif
