A Gift From The Heart Cake is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from It has been over 10y since I've decorated a cake and I chose this one to be my first as I am getting back in to doing cakes for myself again. I was nervous since I had never worked with fondant before but this cake was easy and so much fun to do!! I made a double layer rectangle cake but it turned out nice. The hardest part (as usual, for me) was baking the cake and not having it break as I leveled it and moved it onto the cake dish to decorate. It would be nice to see more "help" info for fondant on square & rectangle cakes. Primarily the covering of the cake; the corners were a bit of a challenge. I would definitely do this cake again!! Everyone LOVED it and thought it was "professional"!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I actually made this for my father for father's day last year. He loved it and was very impressed by it. This cake is doable as long as you know how to work with fondant.
