I think the cake that I just made for my son's 7th birthday is quite possibly my favorite cake that I've done thus far! It's not the hardest, and probably not the most impressive to most folks, but I was really pleased with it!! It's a lion's face that I hand painted. I got the idea from kimbordeaux, here on cc. I actually looked at her cake pic of a tiger, and used that to paint my lion on the fondant. I used to oil paint before college, marriage, and kids, but I haven't done that in over 10 yrs! That might be why I like this cake so much! It was such a fun cake to do, and my son LOVED it!!! Just thought I would share with my CC buddies, and get all of your feedback on it! It's one of the last cakes that I uploaded in my gallery. Thanks for letting me share!
Fantastic!! The cake looks great, very intense I'm so glad you're feeling great about it, because I know it's a great feeling of pride and happiness. Yay Candoo!!
