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!

  2. Thanks! She gets so excited when we make cakes. She screams, "Cccaaakkkee!" the entire time. And whenever the fridge opens and she sees it. I wanted to get the picture bigger, but I had already downloaded. Can I change it? Or is it too late?
