sizes, flavors, fillings?  Gourmet products and ganache will make for quite a different price point than a boxed vanilla cake with a crisco based American buttercream.  And in caking, size does make a difference for the purpose of pricing as well.

Life begins at 325° F, and, yes, that IS powdered sugar in my hair.

Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

Didn't say so in my first post, but I'm in agreement.  Love, love, love this cake.

Aww, you guys made me blush! Thanks for the amazing kind words...sorry, this is the first time I posted something like this....

 

WASC recipe with boxed cake. half butter/shortening vanilla buttercream. Topper is styrofoam, square 6' and 8'. The rest fondant.

 

I use direct sunlight for my pics, then edit it with instagram, then use picstitch....all free apps!
