Hi Adven68,

What an artist you are!
I had to pick up my jaw from the floor, then I read your profile. I'm so green with envy, maybe in my next life....icon_smile.gif

Thanks for sharing your work of art.

Thanks so much!! I hated parting with this one....I don't know why.....at first I dreaded the idea of a nautical engagement party because I thought nautical was very masculine....but the curly waves soften the whole bright colors thing....
Just to be clear...the vase is a vase...just what I had to use as reference. I'm totally flattered that you would think I was capable of making a cake that looked that much like a vase!!! icon_biggrin.gif Hmmmmmm.....I'll have to think about that...

oh well..breaktime is over...I'll have another cake to post in the AM.....

thanks again...everyone!!

Thanks for the chuckle!!! He had to put a little more into me cause I'm 5" 11". I guess with every pound I put on, I get a little more creative? Don't I wish it worked that way!

GORGEOUS.... You really are a true talent.

May I ask, do you make your own fondant or do you buy a commercial fondant? Your cakes are so flawless and so perfect just wondering. My MMF always has some flaws in it. Thanks!

I have been making MMF for a few weeks now. I won't go back. I have found by softening MMF in the microwave for 5 or 10 seconds and kneading it with a tsp. or so of Crisco very well...I get a smooth, easy to work with fondant that doesn't dry up on me. I now roll it out thicker than normal....elevate my cake and let it hang. That alone makes it almost perfect. I then just trim and smooth and then thank God for a perfect finish!
