Congrats! Really nice article - and the "jerry" cake sounds right up my alley - Chocolate, Chocolate, and more Chocolate! Yummy! That would be worth coming to TX for.

Thanks everybody. I thought the news lady wrote it really well. The only 2 mistakes were that she said the largest cake I made was 64 layers...should have been the most layers made in one week. She also said that I made 5-8 birthday cakes a month...should have said 5-8 a week.

frstech--I was in Longview's paper on April 1st for "Faux Food"...I made Rice Krispie sushi and Meatloaf cupcakes with mashed potato frosting. Wasn't really focused on cakes but April Fool's tricks.

Channel 7 news did a piece on us for Baking Gals--baking for soldiers.

Not sure if Longview could top Tyler's article and pics.

What a nice article......I sure was thinking that 64 layers was a HUGE cake!! icon_wink.gif Congratulations!

(I made my MIL come and read it too, she LOVES the cowboy hat & boot cake - she managed a steak house here for 40 years!)

Fantastic! But I'm disappointed to know the cake wasn't 64 layers. can you imagine the ladder that would have been needed? Or maybe just reeeeeeeeallly skinny layers. I think you should try it. icon_biggrin.gif
