"this looks yummy just how it looks"
"Is there a recipe for fondant close by? This cake takes a little work, but it is worth it as it is beautiful and delicious. Yes I would make it again."
"I made a strawberry cake and tinted some of the fondant pink. I used heart shaped cookie cutters and attached the pink fondant hearts to the cake as instructed. It was beautiful, tasty and a hit!!!"
