This cake was for my Grandma who just celebrated her 88th birthday! I've had this stencil for months and I've been dying to use it but haven't had any takers yet. I was so excited to try it out and I thought it turned out beautiful! It was much easier than I had anticipated and it gives such an elegant look to the cake. I also found a quick way to make carnations and they turned out great. I love short cuts!
