icon_biggrin.gif I have just started making fancy cakes because I now have granchildren and the time to do it. I have to thank everyone on this site for all the help, hints and how to's. You are all so generous with sharing your knowledge and I appreciated it so much, I just had to join to say thanks. Maybe one day I can contribute a hint or two... Also, here is a pic of the first difficult fondant cake I made for a "do-it-yourself" type of bride to be, who does her own painting, plumbing and hardwood flooring. Couldn't get her hair the way I wanted but had to use a garlic press as I don't have the tool yet. Love some comments...

Hi! I'm in Alberta too, St. Albert to be exact! What a kind message - you're right, I've gotten so much help here too. I wasn't able to find your picture, although I'd love to see it. Maybe check to see if you posted it correctly.

Good luck with all your "caking"!

So sorry, will try to post the pic again. Can't figure out what I did wrong, but here we go....

I guess the pixels are too high to post. Anyone know how I reduce them so I can post this pic?

Thanks FlourPots. Think I've got the pic reduced enough now that I can post the cake I was talking about earlier - the garlic press cake... Any comments, suggestions, etc would be welcomed. Thanks

Great job...I love all the details...I LOVE the boxes of wood flooring!!

(If you click on the second red X that appears everytime a picture is posted in the forums, you can see it even bigger...)

I think you did an awesome job and as a woman who laid her own hard wood floors, I can appreciate the details you put in with the adorable!!!

Thanks FlourPots, it was fun doing all the details for this cake. Now I'm busy making penguins and doggies for two grandkid's b-cakes. Thank you for the kind words

It's your St.Albert neighbor here! What a great job you did! Very creative, and I think The hair is awesome. I broke my garlic press doing the same thing!
