The cake flavor was yellow with butter cream icing wrapped in marshmallow fondant.

To be unique, we designed a square madhatter cake with fondant flowers, butterflies.

Then we topped it with a large white fondant bow.

”Steph, I was very impressed with the cake. It was absolutely gorgeous. My wife was very impressed and so was everyone else at the party. We didn't want to cut it because like you said it is art. My wife and I occasionally watch Ace of Cakes on the Food Channel and we always wondered what they tasted like. You proved us wrong. We thought you would have to sacrifice taste for design. It tasted wonderfully. I have given your name out to numerous people. Thanks again.” Tyler – Holly Springs, NC
