CakeBakerMoney asked:
Lovely. Great work. Bet she loved it!
Marcella V. answered:
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!
C-MAC asked:
Beautiful flowers Marcella ! I love the way you wired them together - I always find that the most challenging part !
Marcella V. answered:
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!
