You have an amazing gift, alek.

Alek0, like Catbird, I thought that rose was real! what an awesome gift you have.

I'm glad these are only "cyber pounds"!!! being added to my waistline.

I want to come and live next door to you. Then I could enjoy your cakes instead of just looking at the pics and dreaming of how delish they are - your so very, very talented.

Your work is absolutely amazing, Alek!  I have never seen such real looking flowers on a cake!  You really could go into business doing this.

Those are just so beautiful. Why don't you open a bakery? I sure wish you lived closer. Yum Grin

Thank you!

This weekend it is tiramisu time.

Charlotte version, decorated with white chocolate:


Cake version, cake is the bottom part of a vase (Wilton ball cake pan), top part is gumpaste, with real dry gypsophila and gumpaste roses:





I don;t think I could open a bakery for this sort of stuff. I started making roses on Monday, little by little in the evenings after work.
