You just need to develop that inner voice that says " Step away from the cake " , it is the most valuable decorating tool that you will ever possess

Jazzy your cakes are very cute and nicely done. Practice will make you faster; you will fall into a rhythm of how you do things. I would likely take 4-6 hrs. to mix, bake, torte, fill. ice, fondant and decorate the cakes you showed. If I didn't have icing on hand it would take longer; this also doesn't include shopping or invoicing. And, of course, if I was in an anal OCD mode (happens more when I only have one cake to do) it could easily take twice the amount of time. A wise decorator once said to me:
Will they notice?
Will they care?
Will they pay?
That is the absolute truth with me! If I have 2, 2 tier cakes to do, it will take about 10 hours. If I have 1 2 tier cake to do, it will take me about 10 hours!
