Not Too Bad
Not such a bad job with the cakes after all. Not exactly professional material but hey, I'm a work in progress.
Notice the fourth cake on the right side of the picture? That's the sugar free one. I just couldn't bring myself to make it part of the display since it was all droopy and melty. So I ordered an 8" cake from the local grocery down in Iowa to use for the small cake. Which I planned on decorating when I got there.
Turns out they lost my order but had a care bear cake that was white with light pink borders on it. I scraped off the borders and pulled of the little plastic care bear decal thingy. Did some repair work and decorated it like the other cakes. Not so bad for a last minute scramble.
If anyone else lives in the Twin Cities area and wants a cake that they wouldn't mind letting me experiment with please email me. I'd only charge for supplies and ingredients.
