Looks like a lot of work, but super yummy!!! You are very talented!!

This cake is gorgeous. I'm not very domesticated and want to have a go at this... can any advise of bake time for the halved quantities of cake mix? It wouldn't still be the same... would it? Sorry if it's a silly question :(

This cake is sooo beautiful and as I have birthday in two days, I will bake it for my friends : ))

BEAUTIFUL CAKE! After doing 3 cakes, I'd agree that making wdeidng cakes are HIGHLY stressful, and I think I'm done with that phase unless I have an assistant. I have to cut out plans for a week with my friends, including Happy Hour. It came out BEAUTIFUL! To post it must be such a relief

I had to chuckle. Stress with a cake is prabobly high, but the stress I've had over the past 4 weeks or so has nearly killed me. I wish I had cake stress instead. Send you clients to me. ;)Looks delicious by the way.And camping -never tried it with kids before. Let us know how it goes.

she only ever uses one and then tortes the cake into how many layres she wants. She also mentioned that she doesn't need to adjust the length of time the cake needed to bake when using only one pan. She's wrong, right? Sorry but I really can't trust what she says.Thanks,Ingrid

I love your new banner. The atrowrk is very nice. My kids loved Pat the Bunny too, almost as much their Mommy. They are all grown up now. Happens fast! The Cake, is the best. I don't like writing either. Your crafty design is so clever and cute. Mateo is a lucky 1 year old babe. The most elegant 1 year old's BD cake!AmyRuth
