Ok...here is the cake I lost a night's sleep over....my own fault of course. I suffer from a terrible illness called wait-till-the-last-possible-moment-to-do-everything-syndrome.

Anyway...it was a Candyland party but for a 1 year old girl so I modified the colors from the normal bright primary to a more subdued pink and off-white. The camera made it look a bit yellow-y...but it wasn't...

Buttercream and fondant covered cakes...all decorations are mmf. icon_smile.gif

Wow! That is too adorable! I absolutely love it! You did such a great job interpreting the game into a cake! I bet they loved it! Worth the lack of sleep I'm sure ( I have the same disease icon_biggrin.gif ).

Wow! That is incredible. How do you decide what to charge for something this elaborate? Do you price by the serving and add extras??

Yep...that's it.....I changed a couple of things on the cake itself, but the decorations are pretty much the same....

KHalstead and everyone else...thanks for your comments....what a boost of needed energy you guys give me!

Jenn123...I charged per serving and extra for the 3-d topper.

vicki0052...there ae so many instructions.....if you want anything in particular, let me know....but if you took away the topper and the pieces, the cake is fairly easy to make. The rest is like playing with play-doh!


Did I mention how much I love this site?

All I can say is keep some dummies on hand. The next time you have too much coffee before bed, make a dummy cake like this one. It is definitely a cake show winner!
