Wow! That is beautiful! Thanks for sharing the different stages. I've been thinking about how I want to make my birthday cake to look this year and you've inspired me to try some interesting techniques. You could definitely write a book about inspiring people to come up with their own designs using yours as a kind of springboard.

Emma you truly have a God given talent as well as being very generous in sharing your process with us. I had to laugh at your commentary on the fuzzy pic. Although this cake is definately not to my taste it doesnt stop me from admiring your work and I am sure beyond a doubt that the bride and groom will love it, I am also sure that you would have no trouble at all getting a publishing company to take you on as a client when you are ready to write your book. If I remember correctly you are a teacher by profession and looking at your tutorial on this cake I have to say you must be an excellent teacher as you seem to have extreme patience lol. Bravo !!!! Well Done !!!!!

Thanks for sharing! What an awesome cake. I agree. You should be writing books and making DVD's.

Good God you make such beautiful creations!! Incredibly creative... this cake actually, literally gave me goosebumps! Amazing work... No wonder you don't want to make an instructions list! How time consuming... but this was a perfect idea!

Just spectacular. it amazes me how you can "see' that in your imagination. I probabaly would have stopped at step 4 and considered it done.
Thanks for the time you took to put that together.

I.won't.write.a.massive.response.as.the.blasted.space.bar.is.broken.as.you.can.see!

Thank.you.so.mcuh.for.your.lovely.comments.
I'm.thinking.about.writing.a.cake.blog.and.this.response.has.made.me.feel.positive.about.doing.that

In.answer.to.questions

I.have.no.idea.how.much.it.weighs-I.can.just.about.carry.it.but.my.arms.shake.when.I.do!

It's.a.fruit.cake.so.it.can.be.left.out.forever!..This.also.makes.it.heavier!

It.took.three.and.a.half.days.in.total

The.bride.hasn't.seen.it.yet,I'm.taking.it.to.the.wedding.tomorrow.so.I'll.lket.you.know.how.I.got.on.on.Sunday

I've.started.only.accepting.orders.where.I.have.the.majority.artistic.input.
Generally.customers.suggest.a.colour.or.theme.or.even.a.few.words.and.let.me.get.on.with.it
I.prefer.not.to.even.sketch.it.out.as.they.think.they're.getting.one.thing.and.then.my.mind.wants.it.to.go.elsewhere!...If.I.do.try.and.stick.to.something.I.often.find.my.enthusiasm.waning.and.my.inspiration.going.

For.example.in.this.cake.the.bride.wanted.it.pink.and.I.was.totally.stumped.with.it.until.I.sprayed.it.all.gold.and.gave.up.on.the.pink!

I take any order I can get (IF I can do the cake, of course), but I do love those handful of customers I have who just say do whatever you think would work.

My work is so much better when I have the freedom to do what I do best and not have to follow a set list of requests. Just give me the colors you like, a general idea of style and let me work!

You do amazing work and your tutorial almost makes me think I could do that cake....almost. icon_wink.gif

That's really cool that you showed us step by step how you do your cakes...and yes, the gold looks better than the pink icon_lol.gif You can still see the pink through it though and that's cool in itself, adds depth :|
