As most of you know, I travel quite a ways (generally 8+ hours) to attend miniature workshops. Way too far but worth it. However, a few weeks ago, Sophia Harris called me and asked if I was interested in attending a workshop at her boat slip in Marathon with Ruth Stewart. Well, COUNT ME IN! So this past Wednesday, I found my way to Marathon about 50 miles from my home and there was Sophia, Linda Zechel, and Ruth Stewart, getting ready to create a wonderful 1/12 scale cake.
This is the cake we were going to make. It is a birdcage wedding cake. There are 16 layers of cake here. I could slice my cake if I wanted, but I think that is not to be.

Cake after it was iced and layers joined together.
My inspiration again.
Still my cake undecorated.
The white icing with decoration at each layer. Hard to see it in this photo but it also has micro no hole beads.
Better picture with the icing. Ruth's was straight lines, mine were wavy, but consistent. Everyone has to demo their own skill.
There I am with cake with 4 roses added. I put all my roses on the bottom layer. I had to leave a bit early for other obligations, but jeez what fun. Thanks ladies for a great day, CLOSE TO HOME.
