BTW Sharon, I knew that I should have purchased the cutters on your web site. If I survive this fiasco with any money left, they will be the first thing I order on Sunday...oh my, sounds like I plan to stay in this crazy business doesn't it??? icon_smile.gif

Your piping is beautiful! As for the stenciling marks, royal icing is water soluble, if you have the patience you can get that off, otherwise, put your border on and no one will know the difference. Great Cake!! You're doing a great job! And it's like, what, 3am there? You go girl!!!!

Or even let the royal dry and try to "flick" it off with a paletter knife, because the colors are so light....

Thanks Trevie. Yep it's now 3:13 a.m I think I just caught my second wind, so I intend to keep at it until it's finished. Then take a nap before delivering the cake.

I think the tone on tone ivory will work in my favor. But that royal icing is stuck hard to the fondant. I would have to take sandpaper to get it off and that would totally destroy the fondant. So I put the stencil back over both and added another layer to make it look old (?). It looks rustic I think and might work icon_wink.gif

I am going to go roll out the fondant streamers for the bow and get that out of the way and get the bow and roses on the top and then see how things look.

Thanks for the support. Off to the kitchen...

Thank you so much for hanging in here with me tonight. You really gave me what I needed to see this thing through. As of 5:57 a.m. (yep - been up all night and worked on this cake since 1:00 p.m. yesterday afternoon. Sometimes being inexperienced really does bog you down), the cake is done!!!!!!!!!!! icon_biggrin.gif

I am attaching a few photos so you can see the end results. If I can ever do anything for you, all you have to do is send me a message and I will be right there for you like you were for me.

After this uploads, I am going to bed for a short nap and then deliver the cake..

Good morning,
Pam

Glad to see how pretty is your cake. No one would have dreamed of the long anguishing hours spent on it. Certainly, all those CCers that stood by you at those wee hours deserve all the recognition you gave them.
I'm sure the bride will love her cake.

Hi Pam,

I just found this thread as I calm down from a stressful couple of days decorating (no disasters thankfully, just under pressure to get the cakes perfect) so I feel your pain!

Just wanted to say how beautiful your finished cake is, you would never know the stress it caused! Enjoy your well deserved sleep!
post #27 of 65
This is beautiful, by the way. I saw it took you close to 16 hours and if it helps any, something like this would've taken me about 72 or more LOL I am sure the bride will be tickled to death with it.

Now get some rest icon_smile.gif
