Just stunning! My husband too is a LT. here in FL. This would be such an amazing birthday cake to make him. How many hours did it take?

Thanks for the super nice comment! You know it is difficulot to say exactly how many hours, because I made this project attending a 3 day custom class at Mike's Amazing Cakes in Redmond, WA and he already had the stand built with blueprints ready as well as cakes baked, buttercream whipped up and fondant and modeling chocolate colored, which are things that take up so much time doing them myself at home. It was definitely my dream cake experience!

Hi! I'm part of a cake group and they loved your cake and wanted you to join the group. I don't know how to reach you though! You do great work, I'm dying to take a class like this!

You are so talented. The figure is so life-like. I can't wait to see more of your projects.
