So where does Carol fit into this picture?
Carol was never personally inspired to bake or decorate wedding cakes as a youngster, but instead took great joy in experimenting with the fondant and as a very young teenager produced some outstanding sculptures which adorned many cakes of her siblings, family and friends! This passion and talent grew and grew over the years.
What about larger 3D cakes? Are they sculptured from icing?
No, they are sculptured from cake and then iced! Another specialty she has perfected to a "T"
