Polka Dot Anniversary Cake

I know it's been a long time since I've posted about a cake order. Turns out my computer has run out of memory. So I haven't been able to down load pictures. I personally don't think 15,000+ pictures is a lot. Is it? Anyway, I received this order from Sara and she's celebrating her 10 year anniversary. Wow, ten years! I thought that was great news! Totally worth throwing a party! She knew exactly what she wanted. She found the picture on-line and asked me to duplicate it.

I didn't have too much trouble making this cake. My only concern was to get all the dots line up. So I looked on-line and couldn't find any tutorial. I figured out that I could get even spacing by using a ruler (like the bendable one for sewing) and a making a small pinhole using a toothpick. That way when it was time to add my pre-made black dots it went a lot faster. Besides it took all the guess work out of where they should go. Even though I learned how to space the dots evenly it still took some time, but the end result was beautiful. Enjoy!
