Well, after making cakes for about 2 years now for family and friends, I was asked to make a Sweet 16th Birthday cake for my boss's oldest daughter! I have been reading everything I could, took classes and purchased lots of equipment. I finally got to use my knowledge in a cake I got paid to make! And I have a wedding cake scheduled for next May which needs to feed about 300 people - I am so excited! I love doing this and hope that one day I can quit my day job and stay home and make cakes. icon_biggrin.gif

Hey, that's a great cake! You did a fantastic job, I'm sure they loved it.

What did you use to cut out the happy birthday message? I love the font.

Way to go, I'm sure you'll have no problem getting more business!

Thank you so much. It was so satisfying to get paid to do something I absolutely love doing.

As for the font for the letters, I used:

FMM Alphabet Set - Script Lower Case (43-C277)
1 x FMM Alphabet Set - Script Upper Case (43-C272)

You can get them from the following website:

I really enjoy using the cutters and they do such a marvelous job.

I have purchased quite a few "cutters" and love the effects they create. Patchwork Cutters gives you quite a large selection of cutters and project books too.

Thanks for the support...means a lot to come from other cake decorators. icon_biggrin.gif
