Thank you for the encouraging feedback Marsha. I truly enjoyed your class and learned many new tips and techniques. I love the look of pleats and drapes and am sure I will be using them often.

I love everything about this cake. I love the orange roses. They look perfect. I love the pleats around the cake. You can tell you take a lot of pride and patience in your cakes.
cakeartisan answered:
Thanks for your encouraging comments. I really liked the look of the pleats. The roses were not quite as dark as they appeared in the photo--guess I need to take a Craftsy photography class to get more proficient at that too :-)
