Well, I have never entered a challenge before and at the last minute, literally, I tried cake decorating. I highly doubt that Chef Duff would hire me but I figured I would try.

I have always liked the song by Jay-Z, "99 Problems" but when I saw Rebecca A Rakstad come up with this beautyhttp://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=18084829 in postcard form, I knew I had to some how recreate it. I love it so and since embroidery and cross-stitch are my new pastimes, I thought that I would add cake to the mix. Like I said this is my first cake decorating and first challenge so, please, be nice.

Thanks for looking! Sorry I forgot the during pics.

I would normally just post the pics over posting a link, but I seem to be having issues downsizing my photos. My apologies.

haha. gotta love a play on words.

This is a great idea for a cake. I love it because since I've never used fondant, it would be a great way to get into it since I would just have to drape it over the cake instead of being super careful not to have any bumps, etc.

Good work!!

 I just pictured Jay-Z on the tv show Mommas Family. How funny.

Thanks for the compliments! I was excited to make it. Like I said, I have admired the post card for awhile!

SillySlippers- haha!!!

kneedeepnsurprise- thanks!

Batzilla- thanks! It wasn't easy.

chimes- yes, yes I do. That's exactly why I used it! Otherwise I wouldn't have a chance.

MareMare-thanks! It was kinda fun! Wink

beaotch-thnaks! Glad you like it.

So, I am not sure how I feel about eating the fondant. Perhaps I should have flavored it or rolled it out more. Then again, if it was too thin, it may have broken. I truly appreciate all of the kind words. I don't expect to win, but it was fun entering!
