7. Not really. Can't you see those 'globs' on the side? It's really hard to stencil with icing and

get the stencil removed and re-aligned.

12. stenciling

I was going to ask how you got that pattern on the sides--so I assume a pattern and you sifted confectioners sugar over it?

I can't imagine how you did that sideways.

Is the rose on top edible?

It's really stunning, sinking feeling. You did an amazing job.

now you can tell people, 'if you believe Romney/Ryan are going to win, I'll eat my hat!'

because after all, you're gonna have to eat your hat on that one because they have no chance

Great job on the cake and sweet idea

22. "Celebrate with cake."

So went a jingle advocating childhood obesity in one of the Grand Theft Auto games.

Mmm, cake. I want the piece with the flower on it.

24. Gorgeous! But more details pleaseee!

I've always wanted to try my hand at fondant, but just haven't gotten around to it yet.

How long did it take to put it together?
What kind of cake is it?
Is the fondant flavored?
Are the phantasmagorical white decorations edible - and do you do them yourself?
Did you eat the cake?

Congratulations on your well-deserved win. I'm gonna send that to my artist brother if it's OK with you. He'll appreciate the detail even though what he'd really like is a big slice!

46. It's OK with me. I actually took the design from a decorating book from England. I can't remember

the author's name right now and the book is at home.
