Thank you! But cake dummies are so much easier to work with than real cake...still need lots of practice before I would be willing to take the risk of screwing up some brides cake! lol
Seems such a waste to put all of that work in and now it's just going to sit there...
Its my worst nightmare to make a cake nobody eats. They finally sell dummies here so I'm going to try doing some up for the Farmer's Market...if I ever get organized. It sounds like a ton of work to sell at a market, I haven't even been able to bring myself to do a garage sale for the past 4 years. LOL.
I should get back at this tribal art cake. Just need to whip up the frosting with blackberry reduction and then I can start the hours long process -for me- of frosting a cube!
yeah, I need to get busy making my first Italian Rum Cream cake....blah. I so don't feel like baking right now. I haven't had a day off in a month

Oh BatterUp. Its beautiful. I have a question, How high are those tiers? I bought some square cake dummies the other day. They are 4 inches and seem on the low side. Looking at yours, yours look about the same height as mine.
The bottom is 4" and the top is 3".I got mine from Dallas foam. Where did you get yours?
You guys are all so encouraging. I must confess I did not make the flowers. For $2.50 each I can't see a reason NOT to buy them. But I did paint them...
I know heaps of cake decorators buy them!! You may decide one day you want to make them, but I'm going to venture into flowers soon and I know that as easy as the tutorials make it look, it's going to take a lot of practice! $2.50 each is a great price! I think if I had made them, I'd be asking more like $10 a flower, lol! And that's only because it would take me forever - hahaha.
My local cake store just started carrying them. I had made my own before...just a few roses as most of my cakes aren't flowery....but when I saw that price and then went online and saw what I could order them for I decided that I would buy them until I got faster at making them. I know a lot buy them but I want to know how to do them myself. Although soon I may not have time for cake orders. Some stuff is brewing in the cake stand business I need 2 of me!!
