Thank you!
You are all so kind! Love the Call me Maybe idea!
I'm flattered by all your kind words! I'd love for you to repost it anywhere you'd like - but please credit me as the author and don't alter it. I know it's just a for fun poem, but I'm proud of it because it speaks to this creative group of cake decorators that are a blessing to me for sure!
