Rated 4 out of 5 by EKSOHN from working with the chocolate was difficult. Luckily I had found a candy mold of the cross that elped me out, but the chocolate on the sides and getting them even was probably the hardest part.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KristenGV from Excellent cake. I wowed the crowd. I didnt do the candy roses, swags, etc because it was a boy and I wanted to incorporate the soft green color his mother was using for the decorations. So instead of the candy pieces I made green fondant ribbons on the two layers and green candy pearls placed throughout. The cross came out nice as well but keep it in the fridge until you are actually ready to place on top! Also, make sure the plaque is reasonably thick. I didnt make mines thick because I didnt want it overbearing the cake but the cross kept wanting to fall because the bottom plaque wasnt strong enough. Also don't skip the easels! They are so essential!
