Great job - square cakes aren't the easiest!  Nice colors!

AThanks Dana!! I was so scared to make a square cake instead of a round one like my classmates. But I wanted a challenge and lucky for me it worked out!

Very nicely done :)

As a (hopefully helpful) hint, I'd like to see some of your flowers (especially the callas) rolled thinner.

AYay! That's such a fun course, isn't it? Beautiful job.

One tip I have is for when you're using cutters. If you can get those jagged edges off your fondant, your flowers will look much more polished. One way to get them clean is to try to get the gum paste to stick in the cutter, flip it over, and run your finger around the edges of the cutter. This helps rub those jagged edges off. I think the wilton cutter set for this course is kind of notorious for not cutting clean edges.

But I love the cake. Seeing all those flowers piled up on there...it's just a very happy cake to me! :)
