This is the first cake I made for another person. It was for a surprise 50th birthday party, and I DID NOT WANT TO!!! I had only made 5 other cakes before, and I have had no training what so ever. I did one little practice cake, and it turned out pretty good, so I went for it :) every body loved it. The lettuce leaves were made on my children's plastic lettuce leaf and dried in a cupcake tin to make the curve! (i really have very few tools! I charged her 75$. Too much? Too little? I have no idea, but it was fun!
