My boyfriend and I are cracking up. Good reply.
First, I love watching the show. Like most people have said, I learn a lot just watching and I like when he gives little tips on the show. But how come no one has mentioned the bird cake episode where two of the decorators were out in the park with a box trying to catch pigeons to put in the cake? C'mon...
It looks like that is your 100th topsy turvy cake, not your 1st. Great job! I wish my cakes looked 1/2 as awesome as yours.

There are a lot of great ideas in the galleries.
Thank you! You guys are so nice!
I am new at the cake decorating thing and I have never taken any classes. I made a cake for my boyfriend's birthday of us sitting on the couch watching TV because we do that all the time. Anyway, I carved the cake, covered it in fondant, and then covered it a cake dome because I didn't want the fondant to crack. I came home from work and... oops! The fondant became so soft, it tore all over the place and the cake started falling apart. I sadly attempted to salvage the...
