chefbarbie, that is a BANGIN' cake. SERIOUSLY awesome! ceshell... excellent work as always!! You can even make 'lazy' look good! Bless your heart, I have made myself a few cakes like that.
ONE year with the encouragement of a WONDERFUL friend I met here, I made myself an actually pretty cake! It turned out to be a lot of fun. I even did two different set-ups with it, one has columns that I hand covered in rhinestones, but I like this version with no columns because it looks like I'm standing behind the cake leaning over it.
