Nice to see you back for a bit - I know how busy you get.  Would you be interested in joining a closed group on Facebook?  It's called Cakers United and I am one of the Admins for it.  It's a nice group and some very helpful people there and some great cakes.  I know you would be very welcome there!

And I, like Betty, don't comment one every picture, just when I can't help myself, but I do look at them.  Saves us both a lot of time, and typing!!! lol

It is my hobby too!  But I don't have the exposure you apparently have, so only family ask me to do their cakes.  I have only been doing them about 2 yrs. now, and am having a ball.  I like to try everything I see at least once, even if it is only on the side of a cake tin, just to see what it would look like if 'I' did it! lol  Then I am content, and move on to the next one.  I don't have to please anyone but me.   My first bit of string work was done with BC frosting, and on the side of the container!  And it worked! lol  Just recently, I made a batch of RI to do some cookies, and tried the string work again, just to see how I would do.  I am not used to doing anything slow, so, even though it worked, it LOOKS like crap, both the technique & the results. lol   But it is mine, so who cares, I AM HAVING FUN!!  I think I just might post it, to give everyone a much needed laugh! {:o))

You're welcome Mandy - I think you're an awesome baker!  Quite understand about lack of time, you are so busy, which is great for you.  I reckon your cost on the cupcakes was just about right, considering the amount of work you put in.  I recently did a few Valentines and sold them for £1.50 each - they went like hot cakes (forgive the pun) and I could have sold way more.  

Just been asked to quote for a bicycle cake - considering whether to take it on or not........

Mandy they're not hard to make at all I always use 1/2 fondant and 1/2 gum paste  always make them a head of time so that they can sit up and harden
