You are very welcome Betty. Your cakes are truly amazing & beautiful. You are such a talented lady. I wish they had a "like" feature on here like Facebook does so I could "like" every one of your cakes. Each one is unique, your color combinations are always perfect, and your piping & flowers are perfection as well. To be doing cakes as long as you have & still going strong is quite an accomplishment. It's apparent that everyone must love your cakes because you're always so busy. I don't know that I could keep up that pace. I visited your new website & browsed through your wedding cakes. They are stunning. Each & every person here is talented & gifted but each one also has their own unique, special gift that sets them apart from everyone else.
Thank you Betty for your nice comment this means a lot coming from such a skillful person yourself, I am the same as you always looking & if I had the time, which us bakers don't would love to write more comments.
Wow, Betty! I just watched your slide show and you have some pretty amazing cakes! Your piping skills are outstanding! (I'm a big fan of piping too), I don't decorate too much anymore but your cakes remind me a lot of what my style is, and your color choices are so appealing that it makes me want to take a finger full of your icing right off the cake! Beautiful, beautiful piping!
lol Betty - I realised you were talking about flowers! That's very interesting information, thank you. My outside fridge is full of flowers and nothing else! I'm going to try that next - might give me a different texture that will work better. I've always steered clear of shortening as I was concerned about it's effect on flavour. On to Plan D :)
Awe, thank you so much Betty. I look at your cakes and wish I could make all those beautiful flowers you make. I don't have much call for flowers though. As you can see, most of my cakes are for children, which I love doing, but never seem to require flowers. I saw you live in NC. My son & his family just moved up there recently. When we are able to make a trip up there to see them, will have to swing by and pay you a visit too ;-)
