Looks like it was a good time. The cake was awesome. I'm curious about the fondant, how to cut the cake, and do you eat it?

it is a matter of taste thing.. it is made from sugar.. but the texture is not for everyone.. so you can either eat it or peel it off.. cut it like any other cake.. they started at the top and worked down..

and it was a great day!!!

Is it over buttercream, or just the cake?

Hi Everyone! At our RU yesterday, I learned of this new home and am excited to see that Dave has continued to keep us all in touch. Allison has asked me to post some of my shots from our gathering yesterday, so here are some from a really nice day!

This first one is Sherrie, her nice dog, Mr. G., Bonnie and Robindog.

The second one is a part of the total group. Others were wandering around, I think.

Our puppies made a late-afternoon appearance in time to play with Allison and Jen's lovely daughter:

Allison has some great shots of the Birthday cake and surprises, so I won't repeat hers, but I will say that this was a HUGE and special surprise for me. That CAKE was really unbelievable! So pretty and really delicious, Debi!! it tastes just as good as it looks! Such wonderful DG friends! Wish you had all been able to come too!!!
