I just posted a picture in my photos. It was a Dora FBCT. It was far from perfect: There were a ton of squiggles in my FBCT, I ended up getting crumbs in my icing (obvious in the pic), I couldn't get the icing smooth, and my roses look more like lavender artichokes. But my daughter loved it, no one could believe I actually made it, and it tasted good. So ultimately I was happy with my first stab at decorating a cake. I learned alot and I can't wait to make another one!

I had to post when I saw your cake: Not only is it an adorable cake, and a WONDERFUL job for your first time (I'd never guess it was your first), but I also had to write because my daughter is also named Marin, and it's so rare I encounter someone else with that name, with the same spelling as well.

Great job! icon_smile.gif

Great job. What a cute Dora. I have also only done one FBCT, and I learned a lot from it. Hoping my next one will be better now that I know what I'm doing. While you should be proud of this one, you'll no doubt feel even better about the next one!

Thanks ladies!

Tara - how old is your daughter? I get alot of compliments on the name Marin! It's different, but not too different. Your daughter is the first other "Marin" I know about. (except for the TV show Men in trees). And thanks for the compliments on the cake!

My daughter is 7 (she'll be 8 in November), and that's what I love about the name. it's different without being weird (such an fine line and very easy to cross lol). I've come across a few other Marins (some Maren, Marrin, etc.) in the last 7 years, but still very rarely. It was a shock to me when she started kindergarten to find there was another Marin in the same grade at her school! I had always said "Well at least she'd be the only Marin in her class (after I grew up always being one of several Taras). Guess not! lol We've moved now, so she's back to being the one and only (in her school anyway lol).
