I made this for a friend of mine who is doing a bible study on using your talents and gifts at home to bless your family. This is what I do...make cakes to bless others (hopefully!) ;) MMF with red modeling chocolate/fondant mixed accents. There are five layers of red velvet inside with white chocolate cream cheese frosting between the layers. So, not only is it striped on the outside, it's striped on the inside too! :) The bow was an after thought...after I ruined the loopy bow I made :( - but it's fine! Last minute fixes work out...just not as well as my intended bow. Thanks for looking!
