I can't believe it! I love you Sugarshack!!! I made my first square cake (after watching her DVD) and I nailed the sides and the corners. icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif I keep jumping up and down screaming (inside of course). I feel like such a professional. thumbs_up.gif

I just really wanted to share it with you guys since I have learned SO much from all of you here and I never would have even know who she was, let alone about her DVDs, if it weren't for you CC'ers.!

THANK YOU!!!

You did a fantastic job. Those corners are sharp as can be.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! I still can't believe that I made that! I wanna make more! icon_wink.gif I can't wait for more of her dvd's. They are great and super easy to follow. The nice thing is that even though I don't use her recipe, I can apply a lot of her techniques (minus the paper towel, of course).

Whoo-hoo! Sorry, I just can't seem to contain myself.... icon_wink.gif

I love it. Your Bob the Builder looks just like him, and your corners are awesome. Great job.

Your corners are great! How did you write so neatly?

Bob and the writing are chocolate transfers. I originally wanted to have the whole top be one big chocolate transfer, with white choc., but when I did it, the writing got smeared. So, I figured I would do the image and writing in chocolate and the rest with BC and use it like a FBCT. Because I didn't want the transfer to be sticking up...I wanted it to be flush. Which is what I did. Make sense?

Thanks again everyone. Just goes to show you that anyone can do it!

Congratulations you did an awesome job! And your corners are to die for!

Is Bob a buttercream transfer? He really is cute and you did an impeccable job on him...on the entire cake.

Great choice of words for Bob the Builder! And, yes, you sure did -- they are just perfect. Congratulations, it's adorable!!!

Aaawwww! Thanks ya'll!!! icon_smile.gif

After finally going to sleep last night (and not peeking at the cake anymore), I decided that NOW I have to be able to do it faster. I think I want to try to 'beat the clock' and see how fast I can do it. It is definitely easier on a round cake (did that on my Disney cake), but now to master this. Then, I have to master it on shaped cakes. Then I WILL BE MASTER!!!! LOL Just kidding! icon_wink.gif

As mentioned, the dvd is worth every dollar (and more). I am glad that I no longer have to shy away from square (or rectangle) cakes.

And CakeCentral is an INVALUABLE place! Couldn't have done it with all of you.
