Well, the bride just stopped by the house to bring back my stand and material and said the cake was excellent! They were very, very happy with the looks and the taste. They told everyone where they got it from (yikes! LOL!) and also told me that from now until next July they will have 3 - 5 cakes for me to do for family and friends especially the puppy dog cake for their sons birthday. So I'm happy that it turned out well. A lot learned and I wish I would have seen kerririchards post before, I don't know why I didn't think of the beads
!!! Oh well, I'll just have to keep practicing.
Even though she had nothing but good to say about this cake, I still don't feel very good about it.
I appreciate all of the kind words and advice from you all! You're always there when I need encouragement! Thanks so much!!!!
against my better judgement here is the cakes!
