What are you most proud of? Learning to make the cabbage rose. I had a serious accident 3 months ago and lost the tip of my index finger. I was not sure I would be able to do cakes after that. So lucky and so happy that I can still do what I love to do.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make your roses ahead. Decide on a color pallet before starting your project, color your fondant the day before so nothing slows you down once you start the ruffles. Then just have fun with it.

Thank you Maggie. The cake went over well at lasts nights charity fundraiser, it sold for $150.00 at the live auction. Because I iced it in buttercream I wasn't able to do the upside down version for the frills but it worked out alright.

I love your cakes, each one is beautiful. They must taste wonderful. My mouth is watering after reading the ingredients you've used :-) Sorry to hear about your finger.

Thank you Apoline. I am pleased you like my work. The loss of the finger slowed me down for awhile but now I rarely notice it is gone.
