Rated 5 out of 5 by from Completely LOVE this cake! Was easy to put together and the embroidery flowers made this one! Everyone who saw it could not believe it was a cake, many actually thought it was a pillow.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is easily done with the shaped pans! well worth it because it looks so much harder than it was! I made this just for fun to practice rolling fondant and it went so well. Great idea for practice or a dramatic and fun wedding or shower cake. This cold be really cute for a baby shower cake as well! The directions are easy to follow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the directions are spot on and it is a great showcase cake. I made several and changed up the designs and colors on each. This can also be changed from mom to baby and used as a shower cake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My daughter saw this and had to try it for mother's day. once you get the hang of brushing it is easy. Flipping the cake over was a little tricky. The pearl dust really makes it look beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is such a fun, delicate and intricately decorated cake. Although it takes a bit of time, it doesn't take a high skill level to complete. Just a little bit of a skilled, steady hand and outlining where to decorate and it's a lot less dificult than it all looks.
