Looks fabulous! Wonderful TT cake. I also love the cupcake display - really great way to convey the painting the roses theme.

Thank you so muh you guys!! I appreciate your eotional support through this whole endeavor!!

Chass, that stinks! No cake? You tell them that they are officially fired and you're coming to live with me and be appreciated. I'll make you a purple and teal topsy cake!!! Obviously I love you more than they do! icon_lol.gif

I am so proud of you! It is a flawless cake! What method did you end up using? I think I want to see pics of all of it, no that will just make me hungry! Edna is the one who got me started on these cakes. I am so in love with her avatar. I was trying to remember and on the way home about 3 am it finally hit me. Anyway, it is bed thirty and will post more later. Have a great week all!

Aw thanks!! I ended up using the method from the Utube video where you stack up layers of cake and just carve the slant. It worked pretty well, no real problems to speak of other than my fondant issues. Probably user error on those. icon_rolleyes.gif

user error uhmm, whatever, I am sure it was bad PS that made evil fondant!

Ok, I think I am almost awake enough to compute stuff. I will try to post the pic. I like Mel's better. The cake is a "pinkcakebox" inspired TT.

missed your post Gail. I guess I am glad otherwise Mel would just run and pout some place. She needs to know how wonderful she is and that we are just in her shadow. Anybody feel a Bette Midler song comming on. Did your ever know your my hero? That is our Mel. Our hero and true goddess of the all the cake goddesses!

OMFG... are you kidding me? Who came up with THAT ridiculous thought? I mean, this isn't something that you actually believe is it? I mean... come on... when ISN'T it about me? Of all the ridiculous crap I've heard in my life... sheesh! icon_rolleyes.gif
Oh fine... other people exist on this planet for more than just bending to my whim. There. Are you happy now? Thanks for ruining my life. icon_lol.gif
And jlynn... I guess I totally misunderstood that you show me, I'll show you thing. You might wanna delete some pic attachments from your email without opening them. icon_redface.gif

Ok, I have NO IDEA why, but all of a sudden I feel like the ugly fat girl that everyone voted to be homecoming queen as a joke, and there I stand smiling and waving like a moron, thinking I've been accepted. They're laughing WITH me, not AT me, right?? Any moment a bucket of blood is going to fall from the ceiling. icon_cry.gif

Mel,Mel, Mel, we all saw how "Carrie" ended. We don't want that. There will be no blood, they are only playing with you. (everybody got those trick tea straws for her, especially for her TT cakes?)

I knew you would like TT cakes, the bigger the better right??
