Hi Joanne,
I looked at your cake blog back in April. As I told you I haven't decorated cakes in many years. Well I was so inspired by your fondant cakes I just had to take a class in fondant. Small world, I work with a girl that teaches the fondant class at Michael's. I started last week. Love it! I always enjoyed cake decorating as a little side job. With the fondant I just might start again.
Thanks for the inspiration.
Hugs,
Mo :-)

Jessica said...

This is the way all cakes should be decorated - with style!

You're amazingly talented.

Lorilee said...

Your cakes are spectacular! How long does a cake take? I usually spend one afternoon or evening baking mine and then at least 4 to 5 hours on decorating. I have always just made them for friends and family.

Kathy said...

Phenominal cakes, Joanne!

I have a gift basket business and it is the most requested gift over the last 15 years.
From the comments I have already received,
it appears to be something a little different and something anyone could use. I have been so touched by the comments that I have decided to give 2 boxes.
They will be the $100 deluxe size.
I really do want to bless people!!!
I have decided that giving is life at its BEST. The drawing will be Saturday!
