It's the Beauty and the Beast cake in my photos. It's a 13x9, torted with ganache and fondant covered and also Belle is a mini wonder mold. The lettering is royal icing done in old english font. I may have charged too much ($150) or too little, but boy, Belle was a royal pain to make. The first time I made her she looked like an alien with big eyes ...the second time, he looked like she was on drugs--her eyes looked really dialated...third time was a charm!

See my Avatar? I got a $25 gift certificate for it! LOL DON'T ASK ME ABOUT PRICING! LOL Actually I did it as a gift.

Your cake is AWESOME! You are very talented. I'd say your price is fair.

I must be crazy or something, but I can't see your pretty cake? By the way you describe it, I probably would have gone $100....but I'm in the Podunk Southeast. Go figure. icon_rolleyes.gif

I think $150 is good. I have a habit of clamming up when asked for a price since i've just started.

I think $150 was right on the mark. You can tell that Belle wasn't an easy task!!

I missed it the first time I looked too. But it's the first picture in her gallery. Based on the description I was looking for Belle sitting on a sheet cake. But the sheet cake is the book and Bella is off to the side. You can't really see Belle in the thumb nail pics, just a peek of her dress on the right hand side.



Belle's dress is beautiful!

No comment on the price...I only bake for fun. icon_biggrin.gif
