Thank you all so much for your wonderful compliments! It's a real confidence booster coming from you guys!
Gardenmommy - I would like to do this to earn some extra cash. I really enjoy making and decorating cakes (I've done some in royal icing - this one is fondant) and I should be able to do wedding cakes when I'm done.
Mommo_Jo - yes, the flowers are totally edible! But most people take them off the cake and keep them for posterity.
Pink Dandelion - I'd love to! LOL! This will be an excellent reason to get married here in Barbados!
Old Knitter - I've been taking lessons for 5 weeks now. 5 more and I'll be done!
Merry Knitter - At first I wasn't sure what I was doing, but a little practice and the right materials and it was easier than I'd imagined. So... what kind of cake? LOL! This one is laced with brown rum and cherry brandy - 100% Bajan cake! LOL!
Samm - I sure will! I have another practical in a few weeks
