You get what you pay for. If you want good, dependable help you will have to pay more than 7.25. I am just a hobby baker, but good at what I do and would be insulted it offered only 7.25 and I think your friend might be too.
I am so proud of this cake I just want to show it off. I made it for my cousins wedding which was this past week-end. I am getting better with every cake I do. Here was my design I drew. The roses, sunflowers, primrose and some of the leaves I made of gumpaste, but also add fresh greens because I did not make enough smaller leaves to fill in enough around my flowers. I also made stand with the help of the DH. Thanks for looking!
And here is my cake
I took the Wilton course and only made the Wilton buttercream once, didn't like it so I used my own recipe for the rest of the course. The instructor had no problem with it. I am sure you can use your own recipe too.
Well here it is. I was happy with everything but the books need a little work. And I should of tilted the top open book up more. I stacked the cake at the reception but how do you get the tiers stacked without messing up the bottoms? I need to learn from my mistakes. So I have more flowers then planned.
