The completed cake is stunning. But I found the directions were not very specific and that is where the difficulty came in. Ex: frame pattern was in four pieces so that is how I made it. Wrong, supposed to be all together. But if I can do it, you can, too. I would definitely make it again. I also made doubles of the color flow and only broke one, my fault. And I also agree that the cake requires an early start and planning. I put the baby color flow piece (which was about two weeks "old" at that point) directly on the crusted-over buttercream the night before and at noon it was still great.

I made this cake for my niece's baptism a few years ago. My sister in law said she wanted to cry because the cake was so beautiful!
I did make 2 of each color flow pieces and started making them 2 weeks before the event so they would be very dry. I think only one of the pieces broke.
I would recommend making this beautiful design. It is very different from a lot of the baptism cakes out there and it does take a little time to make all the pieces but it is definitely worth it!
