    OMG! :shock: I'm terribly afraid to start mine, now! I know the directions looked confusing enough to me. I'll get it, though ;)
    I got the cake made and delivered yesterday that I had been working on. THe kid gave me a challenge with what he wanted on it, but I pulled it off. It was a hit! SOrry about getting off topic, but I can get started soon on the block now that I've got the cake over with. I have to go soon and get ready. My little girl has a program at school this evening. Tomorrow, I will have both little ones home...doubt I'll get much done, but we'll see. I've got my fabric picked out.
    Anyone interested in seeing my cake?

    Well, I don't know about "PRETTY", but here it is.
    Boy, this really fits under BOM help, huh?!

    this is two layers (two cakes) of chocolate cake iced with concrete-colored whipped icing. THe dragon is a FBCT (frozen buttercream transfer). The rocks are MMF (marshmallow fondant). I made the FBCT and the MMF, as well as the rest. He loved it!

    If you all wanna see more of my cakes, I have 11 (including this one) in the gallery at www.cakecentral.com
    To be able to view the pics, you have to sign up at cake central, but it is free, just takes a minute, and you can browse all the hundreds or thousands of pictures there. Might get some new ideas for a quilt block! :D
    after you become a member, you can probably click on the link below and view all 11 of mine. It won't let you look of you're not a member. :P :roll: my ID is the same there as here.

    well Miranda I'm impressed. I used to do cakes and I know that like quilting even what looks simple to others takes a lot more time and talent than people realize. I gave all my stuff to my daughter when I couldn't finish a cake without my hands cramping so bad I had to stop every 5 minutes. That really makes it take a long time to finish. I did a dragon once but he was animated and cute. While yours looks like a meany, you did a fantastic job.

    I thought your cake was great! You do nice work.....is that a special recipe you made the dragon out of? I did alot of piped cakes when I was into it... the shaped pans like santa clause, darth vader, dora...etc. I still have most of my stuff but like Kathy I cramp up so bad I don't do them as a money maker anymore...just for special occasions for family....

    No, it isn't a special recipe, it's the technique that makes it awesome. I love doing these. They are called frozen buttercream transfers. I got some clear plexi-glass (acrylic sheets) last night, so they've been hard for me to see what's going on on the right side until I put it on the cake...good thing I'm good! LOL! You can check out how this is done:

    Thanks to all of you that've posted positive words on my cake. I love making things!

    Patsy: I, too, used to decorate cakes but had to give it up due to arthritis. Still very interested in doing it but don't get too involved anymore. Last cake I did was a wedding cake for my brother 6 years ago. I used real flowers out of the garden that I dipped in paraphene. It was gorgeous! Randy
