    Hi Amanda!
    I usually do not post comments. I’m a creeper on your site (who happens to share your birthday) and wanted to take a moment to tell you how much I admire your work! This cake is stunning. I love love the braided effect on the sides and that small understated heart on the inside just makes it all the more. I don’t even have a word that explains how much it made me smile… it just did. It inspired me and I thank you!

    Keep up the great work and I would love to see a tutorial on how this cake was done if you ever feel like sharing.
