Hi all CCers--
Well, I finished my dummy cake for the Fundraiser for a Special school here in EasT Texas (it is actually the school where I am renting my commercial kitchen).
I swear, I changed designs 3 times and then settled on pink and black.
Background first--The children at this private school have some kind of learning problems. Each child attends by private pay or by scholarship. The Tablescapes is one event that helps to raise that money. The board invites businesses or people to decorate a table that will seat 8 guests. You do as much as you like--heck, some people have brought in their own tables. This is the 3rd year for the event and my 3rd invite. It has grown every year since started with people now seeking them out to get a table to decorate. You provide each of the guests at your table with a gift. The dinner is catered and all profits (plus a silent auction for some outstanding items) goes to the school.
I am going to try to add my pics--
Sorry--here a closer view of the dummy cake
