Congrats!! It's a great cake - looks like you put a lot of work into it. I just love the giraffes - well, all the animals are really cute! Does any one else in your family decorate cakes, or are you the only one with the passion for it?

Great job! If you're doing this kind of work now, I expect we'll see you on the Food Network by the time you're 18!!! Congrats!

You did a great job, Chani (Naomi)!!! I'm proud of you! icon_biggrin.gif

Naomi always helps me come up with creative ideas if I get stuck, and as you can tell, she's a great help in my business! She has talent I can only dream of, especially for starting so young. icon_smile.gif Someday she'll eclipse me in baking and I'll retire and bask in her accomplishments! icon_smile.gif

Thanks for all the compliments everyone. It took me about 8 hours to make the animals and put the styromfoam cake together.

my moms screen name is kathik and she runs a baking business at home so the cake decorating most likely runs in the family.

no unfortunately the mare and foal are not mine they belonged to the people I used to take riding lessons from. (But I do wish they were mine icon_wink.gif )

I don't think I'll ever be good enough to be on food network. Also it's just a hobby, I don't think I'll be going into business, because I want to become a doctor.

is she a paint? its hard to tell from the pic, but it looks like she is a sabino? in either case she has a cute foal.

Wow! You did an amazing job!!!

I know you want to be a doctor and that's fantastic but perhaps you'll continue this as a hobby. Either way I think you are going to be fantastic at whatever you choose for your career choice. Way to go and congrats on the win! thumbs_up.gificon_biggrin.gif
