What are you most proud of? The color variation and that it came out as it did on a first run.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have a great time with it. Maggie says to embrace the imperfections, the holes and strange things that occur. It is so very true- take that advice to heart. If you go with it- it becomes art. Let your self go.

I love the blush too!! Any idea how many hours it took you to make the cake (primarily the ruffles.) How many layers of ruffles on each tier- did you count?

Being he first I didn't really get my stride till half way through. This one took me 11 hours to frill. The next will be much less. I was so surprised how forgiving and allowing the technique is. Thicker, thinner,
