I only do this for fun and actually was getting sick of this one so I did not put forth my best effort. I like it enough for what it is. 3 layers, 11 x 15, all buttercream. I do feel like I ruined it when I added the "Kansas" scratched out (the recipient chose Kansas to win it all and, well, they are out of it now...)..I didn't have enough blue so I did it in thin lines. I tend to always want to do "one more thing" and then I regret it after; now I need to learn how to just say NO!. Ah well!
