What was your inspiration?
My daughter used to think there was nothing better than looking at the cake books on display at the grocery store. That was before mom had to retire suddenly. Now, my daughter refuses to have a store bought cake because she thinks my cakes get better and better every year. You can read all about our history of cake making here (http://dealsfrommsdo.com/a-sweet-sixteen-birthday-cake-with-sweetworks/).
What are you most proud of?
How happy it made my daughter when she saw the finished project. This was the first time for me to use a cake leveler and I was thrilled when it worked so well and my cakes came out so nice and level.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
My best advice for someone trying this or any other cake project is to be brave enough to TRY! I included several pictures on my website showing how I made mistakes and how I fixed them, especially how easy it was. The second piece of advice is to plan ahead by making sure that you have everything you need before getting started. Don't rush, take your time, and make your cake the day before you need it.
