The grandson who ordered the cake from me saw the flowers and he was blown away! Initially (and before he opened his e-mail) he wanted fresh cut flowers, and since I wasn't able to provide him with pesticide-free flowers in time, I made this arrangement!

Thank You so much! I apologize for not replying, I have not been on here in a while. My husband was laid off from the New York City Fire Department after 25 years on the job, he along with 72 senior officials who had 25 plus years in, were forced into early retirement. I had some health issues to deal with. I stopped baking and making cakes for a while, but Thank God, I am back! So nice of you to say such kind words about my work, from a professional, that mens a lot! Thank You again!

Beautiful flowers Marcella ! I love the way you wired them together - I always find that the most challenging part !

Hello C-Mac!....and Thank You so much! It was the first time for me and it was a challenge, for sure! , but I grit my teeth and told myself to go for it, obviously being careful not to break any of the flowers! Today I place the arrangement on the cake and it gets delivered!

Thank You, it wasn't easy, I had to tread lightly and you know what, a couple of leaves broke off, but I was the only one who was so stressed about it, so that is why I tell people to not be so hard on themselves! Thank You again!
