I'm SO excited! A friend of mine just told me my cowgirl cake made it in the Sep/Oct 2008 addition of Mailbox News magazine! I haven't gotten my issue yet and just renewed the subscription last month so I sure hope it comes.

It's a full page picture too! Woohoooo!!!! thumbs_up.gif I made that cake for last year's Arizona State Fair. It was my first time covering a cake in fondant so I did it totally the wrong way by pieceing it together here rather than covering each tier with a big sheet of fondant. But luckily you can't tell. icon_lol.gif

I was honored to win a 1st place blue ribbon and Best of Show with this cake too! And now it's in the magazine...yee haw! icon_smile.gif

Thanks for letting me share my excitement!
