I was SO excited in July when Kimberly Anderson,the editor of Mailbox News called and asked IF I would like to make the Halloween Sweets (Skull and crossbones) cupacke cake with pictures and instructions for the decorators showcase for the Sept/ Oct issue.....WOULD I LIKE TO!!!!!????? (as my kids look at me like I'm insane for "slightly" freaking out icon_confused.gif ) Sure I'd love to. was the reply.



SO I m not sure if I freaked out more when she called or when the issue came 2 days ago icon_lol.gif !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Anyway had to share it's nothing fancy but it was a blast and an honor to do it.! There are some amazing cakes in this issue and hats off (no pun intended) to KimAZ... I love you cowgirl cake its awsome!!!!!!!!

I just looked thru that issue, and I LOVED your article! I have an article being published in the Nov/Dec issue (Christmas basketweave w/ cookies) and I hope it looks half as nice as yours! I'll definitely want to try the skull and crossbones for Halloween. It'd be great for a pirate theme party, too.

WOOHOO! Yeah Tirby! thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif I didn't know that was yours! How cool is that? What a great cake and such a fun idea! I'm so happy to know other CC's are in that magazine too. Thank you for the compliments on my cake too. I'm still smiling from ear to ear to see it in there! icon_biggrin.gif

I know bonnscakesAZ has a 3D apple cake on page 2, Indydebi has a basketweave cake on page 36 and tonedna has a sunflower wedding cake on page 37. Who else??? Come on everyone, share your joy!


Wish we knew people's names so we could identify even more!
