I was asked to make a cake for the Child Abuse Prevention Council's annual fund raiser. My 6" tall cake, which is also only 6" round, sold last night for over $600. I'm thrilled!!! icon_smile.gif

I posted it in my photos, but I don't know how to add a link so I hope you don't mind that I'm posting it again here.

The flowers were just GP roses done on 12" long floral wire. I used two 22g wires taped together for strength. Then I dusted them with petal dust.

I sure appreciate your kind words and for letting me share this with you. I was actually feeling kinda bad about the cake because I didn't think I liked it. Boy, when she told me how much it went for, I think I like it a whole lot more now.LOL>
