I made two cakes for my kids' "Pirate and Princess" party and was running soo late. My cakes rarely live up to my expectation and I since this was my first attempt with a new filling and MMF (fondant in general really) I was worried.

After working ALL Day on them I looked at them setting next to one another and started crying. Not only did they meet my expectations but they exceeded it. I have to brag!!!

They are both in my gallery the treasure chest and the pink cake.

Thank you for looking!!!

And thank you all for the wealth of knowledge a newbie can find on here!!!

You did a great job on both cakes. I love the tiara. icon_smile.gif

When I saw the title of your post, I was worried it was an unhappy post but I'm so glad for you that it isn't! I'm sure your kids loved both of their cakes.

It happens so often that what we envision in our heads doesn't come out the end of our piping bags... When it works out just right, though, ain't it a lovely feeling?!?!

Awe! Congratulations! It feels so good when we can pat ourselves on the back, rather than tearing ourselves apart for the flaws we see (even if nobody else sees them).
