Ann, I feel my cakes don't compare to yours or so many people here. I love to use colour but with my arthritis my attention to detail is suffering. I am in a chronic pain management clinic that is helping me deal with it....they are even finding ways to make cake decorating easier and fun again!
The wedding cake in my avatar was an example of "waking up with a vision". The cupcake fondant tops were supposed to be white with teal decorations but it wasn't working for me. I would have had to make the pearls and other things by hand because they don't come in the right colour. It just hit me one night that I should switch it and didn't get a chance to tell the bride. All the decorations were what she wanted but the colours were reversed! She, and everyone else were thrilled and I was much happier with it.

hi ann i have gone on to your facebook and saw your recipe for the cup cakes and icing i will make them and let you know how they came out, how many does one recipe make?
thank you kor your comment on my cake.
do you ever come to Johannesburg?
Your work is fabulous! I enjoy the details of what you do. That is probably why you are a "Professional" but let it be known, you have inspired me to continue and make more cakes! I only make cakes for my own pleasure to share with family and friends.
I wish you lived a lot closer and if you ever come to the states, please announce it! You can come to my home and make a cake or two or three or more!!!
I wish you tons of success.
LOVE YOUR MAD HATTER CAKE!!!!!!!!!! AWESOME!!!!!!! I will take inspiration in your work too ;-). Thank you for your kind words Ann. PS - I am so hungry after viewing your cupcakes with strawberries....YUM!!!!
Your painted cake as well as your figures are gorgeous! I have often felt if I could just paint my design on that I could make a perfect cake. I must become brave and take the plunge! Thanks for the inspiration and the nice comments.
