I made this for one of my neighbors. For her son & a very close friend. She wanted the cross, we found the picture on the web somewhere. I made the cake out of cupcakes and placed a ribbon around the cupcakes. With pink and purple roses, rosebuds & accents. They loved it. It was easy to hand out & they were pleased. (May 2006) Since then, when I make these I use wafer/potatoe or rice paper instead of ribbon, it looks fine, I can cut it to the right height and they can even eat it.
