What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make enough cake and icing for the project so you don"t have to stop in the middle of your work to make more.

Thank you everyone for your nice comments.kathleenm1193521 for the pointers I would give is to watch the class all the way through and prepare as much of your materials as you can ahead of time but most of all have fun with it. Mplspam,it was alot of work but I would have been lost without this class and Mike McCarey,it made everything go alot easier.
