Well it has been a long time coming, but I had to make sure to post and hope everyone who answered any of my hundred post begging for help with this cake. I was so so afraid as it was my first "real" cake. I seriously was scared to death, people here helped me every single step of the way from pans to frosting and every single step in between. Honestly thank you isn't enough all of you pros out there helping people every day it really means more than you may know. It's not perfect or even close to any of the showstoppers I've seen, but it was so much fun and my son was thrilled beyond belief and that's the best part! So THANK YOU!!! Andrea
