Rated 5 out of 5 by JenoStafford from I made this cake for my 16 year old son and 17 year old daughter's birthday party. Unlike the pic on Wilton.com, I piped two initials on top and did not do the flowers around the bottom (trying for something not so feminine), but added piped balls around instead. I iced the whole thing in one color ---dark brown chocolate. It was a very handsome, yet very elegant cake and it received many compliments from all who attended the dual event. I will make this one many times, I am sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by raisinette from I love monograms and was excited to see this cake with the script atopped. I iced the entire cake in chocolate frosting. I did not use the flowers around the base of the cake. Instead, I rolled chocolate balls of fondant and cut out blue fondant neckties. I alternated them around the base and it was very attractive. I would definitely make this cake again, and will try the flowers after practicing on this skill.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sillyme33 from I made this cake last month for my goddaughter who turned 15-she LOVED it!! I didn't attempt the beautiful flowers around the border because i wasn't that brave, and i added some pink here and there for accent and it came out beautifully! Perfect when you want something elegant for a special occasion. I will make this cake again :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by GWaltz from I made this cake for my daughter-in-laws birthday. I made a double layer brownie cake. I didnt use the flowers at the bottom (not a big fan of the pompom). Instead, I piped a reverse shell border. It looked very nice! I also made the initial, borders and scrolls a lighter color than the icing on the cake. It turned out very nice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jmar from I didn't do the flowers around the bottom since that is still a bit beyond my skill level, and while I frosted the cake in chocolate as in the example, I decorated it in light and dark blue. It was a pretty straightforward design and the results were pleasing. Would definitely do this one again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jenncraig from This was very pleasing to look at when done. I had so many remarks as to where did you but the cake from, no one believed that I did it my self. I now have two orders to do cakes for some upcoming events. I will do in different color the next time to give it a little contrast.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Erinn from I made this cake for a Royal Wedding celebration when Prince William and Kate Middleton got married. I put a W on the top of it. It was very easy and will definitely do this again in the future for other cakes.
