Elisa, You are such a talented woman. I consider myself one of your biggest fans. This tutorial is easy to follow, and I believe that anyone with a bit of a sense about baking can accomplish it. It is so adorable. Loved it!! By the way, I did not have an easy oven either! ( Loved your transparency here.) Best luck, and a thousand blessings to you, your family, and your nice staff at your shop.


Hi Elisa, I loved this video... I´ll to try to make mine! Why do you use two pieces of cake in the middle layer instead of one like the other two. Best wishes all the way from Mexico City =)
