I have pics of the bits and peices so far I will be putting together my cake on Sat.

I just finished mine about an hour ago. I'm bringing it to my MIL tomoroow. Tonight I'll put the finishing touches on a second one that I'll be bringing to my mom on Sunday. It's exactly the same as this one, but blue instead of purple. Remind me never to make two cakes this complicated at the same time. What a ton of work. But the joy on their faces will be worth it all.

Thanks for the compliments guys. I just finished the blue version of "the twins" (and believe me, I do feel like I gave birth today!)


umgrzfn, next time I make one of these, I'd be happy to do a step-by-step photo tutorial. In the meantime, there's a terrific thread with directions for making a hatbox cake, by fairytale, that really helped me make these.

Those are beautiful artscallion!!! Thx for the tutorial link. It would be awesome if you did a pic step by step for those of us (well....me icon_rolleyes.gif ) that are very visual! I can read directions...read them again...and again, yet still not have it right! icon_cry.gif I will definately try one though from the link you gave me! Thx again!

Oh artscallion they are so gorgeous! And so much work trust me I know I am still tired and I only did one. I can not believe you did 2!!!!! Just beautiful!

I struggled learning how to use my new camera. The thing has too many settings I don't which one will work better then the next. The pics are a little fuzzy. I finally put up some photos. here...

That is GORGEOUS, sadsmile!!! It's all so delicate and elegant. I love all the elements...the plaque, the earrings....the texture on the gloves. Your Nanny must have been thrilled. Where did you learn to do flowers. They're my passion. And yours are so nice.

Oh, and BTW everyone, sadsmile and I can't have been the only ones who made hatbox cakes for Mothers Day. Lets see some pics!
