If that was your first wedding cake, can't wait to see you second!!
icon_eek.gificon_eek.gif You did a great job. I can see why you would get a job offer and orders. Doesn't it feel nice to attend the event and everyone know just how talented you are!!

Oh Sarsi... no wonder you haven't had time to hang out with us lately!! That is wonderful! It is elegant and decadent looking! I love the way the chocolate wrap turned out. You really SHOULD be proud of yourself! What did the bride say? I mean, after she fell into your arms bawling with joy and appreciation of course... and kissing your feet, you know... icon_lol.gif

OH thanks you guys!! Melvira, you are too funny!! She LOVED it!!! So did everyone at the reception!! We kinda stood around the cake table for a while just to hear what every one had to say, and people were just SHOCKED that was a cake!! Everyone was ecstatic about it!! Of course I saw the faults, but hey! don't mention them, and nobody knoooooowwwwws!! LOL...

Sarsi, your cake is stunning! What a fantastic job you did - can't believe it's your first wedding cake. I aspire to do something like that.

Oh my gosh, that is SO fun!! I remember a wedding last summer ('07) where I was standing in the buffet line and the line passed right by the cake table of course. So I'm listening to this trail of comments, especially this group of women in front of me. And they're talking about it and essentially flipping out about how much they love it. I wasn't going to say one word... icon_rolleyes.gif Well it was all I could take when the one lady finally said, "I just HAVE to know where they got it! I wonder who did it!" I leaned forward and said, "Actually, I made it." Of course they thought I was kidding until I handed them my card. That was the nicest feeling because I knew these people weren't just being polite or nice to me. It was their genuine reaction with no knowledge that they were standing by the person who did it. That was especially nice because I never get to go to the weddings, you know?

Melvira...It was the best when you hear about how great people think it is when the don't know your standing right there...I had people going up for second looks...and yes, I was keeping my eye on the cake table during the reception! LOL!!!

Um, what you actually meant to say was, "They are incredibly tedious and time consuming, and you must have mad cake skills like me to do it, but for some reason I am able to make it look simple!" right? icon_lol.gif
