Rated 5 out of 5 by karenskookies from I had a great time making this set of cookies. I am not much of a cake decorator--I perfer cookies. Therefore, I did not make a cake in the long loaf pan. Instead, I used a rice krispy treat as a base and covered it with fondant and added oreo "dirt" and gummy worms. I thought the rice krispy treats would hold the cookies sticks in better than a cake. I also made the colors very deep and it was a great contrast against the white "fence". Instead of the eggs, I made butterflies to sit on the fence as well as a sign that said "Happy Birthday". I added names to the "posts". It was very cute! The only reason I rated it as "medium" is you have to make a pattern for the "fence posts". I made each post 1 1/2 " W x 4 " H. I put six on either side and two on each end. It did take a lot of time as I've only been decorating and had the first Basic Wilton's course for a few months. A more experienced decorator may find it pretty easy. Anyway, it was such fun! I hope you have as much fun as I did!

Rated 4 out of 5 by New Mommy & Lovin' It from I fell in love with this as soon as I saw it. It is absolutely ADORABLE. It was much tricker to make than I anticipated, however. My problem was that the cookie crumbs fell everywhere and made a mess. Next time, I plan on covering the sides with fondant, making it 1/4 inch or so higher than the cake, to keep the crumbs in place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by chicklets0524 from I LOVED making this cake!! I had trouble with the cookie fenceposts not being uniform, and then breaking, but I made extra!! HOWEVER instead of using cookie flowers, I made gumpaste ones for my friend. She really wanted something pretty, with LOTS of flowers and for me to show her my "flower" skills. The garden turned out so pretty! She didn't even want to cut it! I also iced the cake board with the "grass" tip and made a cookie that said "(friend's name)'s garden".
