I apologize... I know this is not even original, but it just flew by the new cake pics, and well, I am just so in love with it that I really wanted to share! Sorry! icon_smile.gif

(inspired by franmjc's beautiful cake.)

Jeez! icon_eek.gif That is a gorgeous cake. I have to go to the gallery so I can put it in my favorites. Thanks for pointing it out, I usually don't have time to go into in to check it out icon_smile.gif
Question: what kind of fondant do you like to use, and is the brown a chocolate based fondant?
I just found your cake in the gallery and you answer all the questions...

Great work! May I ask how you got the bow to stay on the cake? I'm curious because I have a cake coming up where I must do something similar. It seems heavy so I'm wondering where the support comes in.

I love the pink and brown and this is the nicest one I have ever seen. I really like the balance of colors and the bow is gorgeous too ~ fantastic job! icon_smile.gif

What is that expression.... imitation is the highest form of flattery? So is it ok if I immitate you soon? icon_lol.gif

I used royal icing that I tinted the same color as the bow.

beautiful cake!!!! and i dont' think imitation is a bad thing as long as credit is given!! i think it's a complete compliment! i mean how many brides bring pics of cakes in magazines and tell a decorator... "This is what i want!"

WTG!!!
