Hi, I plan on stopping in but I don't think my new software is going to allow me to speak my text into the chat room. The chat room moves so fast that I can't see what's being said and still try to text in a timely manner before the screen scrolls away from me. So, if you see me in the chat and I don't respond quickly please understand I'm not ignoring anyone, I'll just be trying to catch up. Thank you for understanding.

And now for my choices for the first order of Cupcakes... Thinking of my great-nephew's and great-niece!

CAKE FLAVOR: 
Cookies and Cream

ICING:
Chocolate Fudge

ICING DECORATIONS:
Sprinkles
Sparklers
Coconut

FROSTING/DECORATION COLOR:
Turquoise

CAKE FILLING:
Bananas

CAKE LAYER:
Cupcakes

Here's my finished cake: Beach Life. My extra ingredient (3-tiered cake) is the title. I actually had a lot of fun putting this cake together, probably mostly because it involved ScrapSimple and blending, LOL.
