Iâm soooo stinkinâ excited â I have to share! ACD Magazine (August/September 200icon_cool.gif did a small spread on the 2008 Mid-Atlantic Cake show and my cake is in there (#28 â page 73)! It was a total surprise â I still canât believe it! I opened the magazine last night and started screaming & crying!!! I just started cake decorating a year ago and this was my first competition â what an honor!

Thank you CC Members for all of the great tips & inspiration! icon_biggrin.gif

It was so neat to see the cakes that I had just seen in real life (only I don't think the pictures did some of them justice.

You did a beautiful job!
