  1. I should have known it was Martha! I’ve seen some great stuff for you challenge today!

  2. This looks so tasty. I’m inspired to participate, but I’m traveling and have limited supplies. We’ll see. Thanks.

  3. …Hallo Beate, das sieht nach Kalorieenbombe aus…:-)
    Eine tolle Inspiration hast du gegeben…:-)
    Freu mich auf neue werke von dir und hoffe, es geht dir gut!
    Viele liebe Grüße, Silke

  4. Beautiful cake. I’ve always loved colour on wedding cakes, even way back when it was far from fashionable over here. I don’t often think commercial cakes look good enough to eat, LOL, but if that tastes half as good as it looks it’ll be doing well. Thanks for the challenge – be back later in the week.:-)

  11. This is my first BIC. It is a challenge for me to go from something like a cake or an outfit to paper and ink. I don’t think my brain works that way! It is good to step out of my comfort zone.

  17. Here’s mine –
    I was hoping to make a card with tiers like the cake, but no time.
    It’s been raining non-stop for the last 7 hours, so it’s too dark for a good photo, and I can’t scan it because all the flower petals are curled up and I don’t want to squash them.
    I see some of the design team used the blue. Being a cook I just zoomed in on the cake and never even noticed the background, LOL.
    Hope you’re having a good week.
