This is my first big event cake. It was simple. All BC even the filling. The flowers are silk and the # 40 was made out of Royal icing. It took me two days to bake and decorate. I'm on my way icon_wink.gif

Wow!!!! Thank's guys. To answer your question michellesArt. I am self taught. I signed up for wilton's classes but after sitting in on the first class I said to myself I can do this on my own. I'm impatient, the class was going to slow for me. After that the rest is all by trail and error. I love to do this and I realized this was my gift. I learn from looking. And it's worked out to my advantage. Believe it or not..this was the second cake.
The first one I did collasped on me. I underestimated the weight of the square cake. I used just cake plates and dowels between the layers and it caved in on me. I was devastated. But thank God I had enough time to do another one. This time though I used seperater plates. That trail and error thing. But anyhoo thank's again for all your comments.

matwogirls- I just picked up the impression mat from my cake decorating store. I did'nt see a size on it.

kimmypooh- It was a diamond impression mat

kjt- Thank you
