Amazing cakes.  Those are unreal.  Mmmmm Cake. 

I love the SpiderMan.  How long does it take you to make one?

Hey everyone, Thank you so much!! 

Bluemoon, it takes a really long time, I am not fast at all! For a 1/2 sheet size like most of these it takes at least 4 hours & then at least 30 mins. to clean up! I bake the cake itself the day before & if it's colored too, that almost doubles the bake time  I don't make nearly enough making them (my husband reminds me regularly) but I love doing it so much. I've done all kinds of other art but i love cakes the most.

Thank you all so much for commenting, love you all!! Monken

Monken,

Your cakes just get better and better all the time if that is possible.  Each one is a true work of art!

A 3 tier birthday cake?!  Cool.  Keeping fingers crossed she wants it, so I might get to see the pics of it.

Hey Muffy, it's for a 65th b'day, I just don't know if she wants to spend that much. I just took a last minute order for a cake for tomorrow. It has the FOX logo(bmx, etc.) I don't have boys so I had never heard of it. I'll post a pic later today!

Monken, I always love to stop by here. First, because the cakes are extraordinary and second because you are a very special Monkey.  I hope your husband is well.
