Well, compared to some of the houses here- it is med- to largeish I guess- 5 bedrooms, 3 baths, den, living room, dining room , office, playroom, kitchen- so I guess largeish-.

There are a number of GREAT videos on YouTube that other cakers have generously shared- and they include their recipes- Sugarshack (Sharon Zambito from SugarEd Productions)- and Edna D.- ToneEdna- from Design Me a Cake.

Once I sign off here I have to post my stuff in the Cake Disaster section- my buttercream...
