K Lee 2Strings asked:
I don't see the failure. It looks downright scrumptious to me. That's all that counts in a decadent chocolate birthday cake.
BakingBabe answered:
Thanks - I appreciate it. It was tasty!
ribana cristescu asked:

Tuffstuff asked:
Where is the failure? looks gorgeous to me
BakingBabe answered:
It was harder to make the fans than I thought, so I was not happy. But it still looks kinda cool. Thanks!
Pam Sews asked:
you know how unraveled fabric is very popular now? Well, I LIKE your "broken" fans - very trendy and I cannot believe it lasted long enough to be photographed... looks YUMMY, and gorgeous. You've invented something!
BakingBabe answered:
It was for a friend's bday, so I took a quick pic before delivering it. But everyone said the same thing, they liked the "broken" fans too. And it is a delicious cake no matter what it looks like!
