Thank you thecakewitch, appreciate your reply. If the picture was a good frontal I suppose I could follow your suggestion but it is at an angle so I would really like for find something similar on the web... if I just knew how to search.  "Damask" does not work. I see that you own the Cake Silhouette?  Do you recommend it?  It is on my wish list...
Can you help me with this design please?   What is it called?    Want to find something similar to use as template to hand cut fondant since I doubt there is a specific cutter with that design.   I have tried finding it as "damask" but can't locate anything even close to it.   Thank you!!!!

I did it baking 2 cakes using a bundt cake pan like the one in the picture. Fill 1/3 of the pan so it he cake is not too high. I had to do minimum torting and carving. Used thin royal icing on top and some large sprinkles make with fondant. Good luck
A client told me recently that the "new trend" is cakes that are gluten free, low fat, low sugar and vegan even better.  According to her if I anyone intends to continue in the cake business that's the way to go.
 That sounds good, ellavanilla! However... before I bill her I would like to see how the 'other' home baker interpreted ale122809's fabulous design and how she achieved it for only $100...You would not want anyone to think that the lower priced (and probably much inferior cake) was YOUR idea
Totally agree!!!
"That" person?  Unfortunately it is not only ONE person.  I hear that often... People see something done in a short video, many times by a highly skilled and experienced professional using all the specific -and expensive!- tools needed and are left with the impression that it is really very easy to do.  Not to mention that many times the video was already edited for sake of time with many long hours of in between steps shortened giving another false impression that it can...
How interesting that so called "friends" feel they are allowed to treat us this way! In my short experience as a home baker/cake designer I have found out that strangers or people that come to me by "word of mouth" tend to be more considerate than those "friends/acquaintances". On the other hand, ale122809, did you not have an "inner" voice screaming "TROUBLE" while taking that order from the beginning or even the 1st time she contacted you to lower the price of the cake? ...
 Yes Emma, I do think so.  I believe most people do not respect us the same as they do other formal businesses. When they go to a store front bakery for example and place an order, giving a deposit, it is very unlikely that they will call back and say "my budget changed and I now want to spend less on a cake so change the design to accommodate the price I want to pay" as in ale122809's story.  How can we educate our clients to treat us with respect and consideration?  I...
