Our woodworkers club is having a carry-in dinner during our December metting and I am signed up to take a cake. My husband thinks that I should take a cake that looks like a TABLE SAW. Any suggestions......
Which long Wilton Leveler are you talking about, the new folding one, or the older non-folding one?My sister has the old type and I have used it several times and have not had a problem using it IF you make sure the blade on it is straight and not tilted slightly. The folding version I always have trouble getting a straight cut with it. I DON'T like it at all. I will probably be returning it.
When I needed a "dummy" cake, I went to Menard's and bought a sheet of styrofoam insulation in the building department. It is 2" thick and 4' X 8' so my husband cuts 2 pieces the size that I need for the finished cake and I tape them together with 4" clear packing tape.

I have a request to make a birthday cake for a 17 year old boy that likes to watch Cage Fighting. Does anybody have a suggestion on how to go about this? I am thinking about using a hexagon pan for the cake and putting a cage on top of it but I am not sure how to go about making the cage. Any suggestions would be appreciated. TIA.
I would suggest the Shedd Aquarium. I have never been to it but one of my kids have with his family and they said it is great. I have always wanted to go but haven't made it there yet.
You are one special customer. I have a funny feeling that she appreciates you just as much as you appreciate her.
