Meant to look like that? Meant to look like they dropped it, tripped over it, and kicked it through the goal? I don't think so.

I love Elmo. I have a naked Elmo doll... no, no, wait... I mean action figure, not doll, action figure, really, action figure.

Eton Mess looks like that, 'cept with fruit not choc.

That yours, Ali?
Teen, not cake.
Sorry to have to ask, I'm awful with faces, your boys are growing up fast and it's a sideways shot.
Enough excuses to forgive me?

Congrats! ! Is that quote a good enough profit for you? Doesn't sound too expensive for a wedding cake. In any case...again....CONGRATULATIONS!!! :-D

The ingredients will cost about $100. The rest is labour and set up which i have allowed a whole work day for. Its not a huge profit, but i am not a trained professional either. Down the track when my reputation preceeds me, i will be able to ask top dollar.

OMG I love the idea of croquembouche!
I came very close to buying a central cone to make it for the Staff Room when I was at school. One of the few times I actually reined myself in...

Congratulations, you're doing marvellously.

PS I should have known that boy wasn't yours.
Not handsome enough.
