Well, I did it! Thanks to all that helped w/ their suggestions over the past few months. I won't be doing any more cakes for pay though. It's so stressful, and w/ lots of little ones running around the house, I think I could pull my hair out sometimes. Let's just say my bottle of Tylenol is pretty empty!! icon_lol.gif This was only my second try at square cakes and I really like how it turned out. There were also 2 12 x 18 kitchen cakes too.

The only problem I had was that the coordinator of events for the wedding was a pompous jerk! He refused to sign the release form for the cake agreeing that it was stable and sound in structure. I didn't argue because I had it in the contract that the bride signed in no uncertain terms that I was not responsible for the cake after I left the site for any reason! thumbs_up.gif

Anyway, Here's the link and thanks for looking!! I tip my hat to all of you that do this for a living. BRAVO!!! icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks!! I would love to continue decorating! Maybe when my 2 youngest are older I can find a catering company willing to hire me. I think I would rather work under someone and do the decorating. No need to worry about the business side of it too much! I just come in, do what I do best, and I'm done. icon_lol.gif
