I made a cake in the shape of a pipe organ (it's in my album) in October for a church's pipe organ celebration/concert. It was about 100 pounds and was the biggest cake I've made to date. Very cool. I found out today that the picture and my name has been published in The American Organist magazine, which is a national magazine and it will also be published in another magazine called "Worship Arts". I know pretty much all of you don't get these magazines or haven't even heard of them, but I am still really excited about it and I had to share with people who would understand my excitement. It is just too cool! I wish there was a link I could show you, but I don't know one. There's no article - it's just a picture with a caption underneath. It doesn't even make sense the page it's on, but it is there. How cool is that? Thanks for letting me share! icon_biggrin.gif

It's super exciting to hear that it will be in TWO magazines ... and they're not even cake magazines!

Yes, get lots of copies .... frame at least one! thumbs_up.gif

Way to go...that cake is impressive. I think most of us would be excited too if we were featured in any medium regardless if it's cake related or not. So you should be excited and proud - I know if it were me I'd be jumping up & down and bouncing off the walls. icon_wink.gif

What an honor!

I was looking for some ideas the other day for a cake I need to do for my daughter's church. They are celebrating their 150th anniversary. I decided to do a tiered cake with each level signifying something. I saw your alter and choir and hope to incorporate something like that in my cake. You've certainly inspired me to try. The tough part will be to make the little people and choir robes. I'll post when I've finished.

Wow!!!! icon_biggrin.gif

It's a real accomplishment to get non-cake people to appreciate the talent and hard work that goes into creating a great 3D cake (and especially one of such large proportions). judge.gifbirthday.gifparty.gif

Thanks for all the positive support! VeeJay - the people on the gingerbread were really, REALLY easy to make. I used ice cream cones, wrapped fondant around it, made some sleave looking parts and attached then painted the blue on. I attached the head with a toothpick.
I am super excited. Thanks again for the support!
