Ok, I'm a hobby baker and don't know all the acronyms.....what is GST?  I'm just curious because it makes it easier to follow conversations when you understand what's being talking about.
I use FromScratchSF's white cake recipe for cupcakes as well as cake.  Works very well and tastes wonderful.
Startingout, for being self taught, you did an absolutely beautiful job on those cakes, especially the middle one.  That is very detailed and well done.  All of them are well done!

Cazza and Cat, I think I have you beat on being the worst at wiring flowers!  I don't know what I do wrong, but they always end up starting to unravel at the bottom of the wire.  I just finished doing a cake for my niece's bridal shower that I'll be going to in a few minutes.  I was suprised that the little "spray" I think it's called turned out pretty good.  I still have to figure out how to download pics.  The cake didn't work out like I wanted it to, but I think she'll...
