Hey Tiggy, nah you arent blind icon_biggrin.gif

It is hard to see...

look down through Francesca's comments, like halfway to the bottom. She puts the link in her comments as she is thanking people for the nice feedback.

It's a Windows Media Video file, so that might be the problem.

You need Flip4Mac (free) then you can view Windows Media Video files.

Absolutely gorgeous job. Just gorgeous. You really mastered that technique. Thanks SO much for the inspiration! I am hoping to get time this weekend to play around with it!

Is Francesca on Cake Central? If anyone knows her would you ask her to post the tutorial on You Tube. It seems that I am not the only one who can't access her tutorial - I can't even access her website...though I am not sure why?

Hi folks, I looked for my old link and don't see it anymore. Maybe someone can find it online somewhere? It was a great technique!

I'm having the same problem, she has lots of beautiful photos on flikr. It seems lots are having a problem accessing video.

I just saw a post on franjmc's page on flikr concerning the roses, the video is corrupt and is no longer available. icon_cry.gificon_cry.gif

Maybe a CC member that has seen it and made the roses would be so kind as to do one for CC.
