Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. I've already done the blue so today was something new. I created a pleated ruffle at the bottom of my cake. Sounds easy doesn't it.
Hard to imagine one 2" pleated ruffle circling the bottom layer would take 3 hours to complete. 3 solid hours, and that doesn't count the time I took yesterday creating the card stock pattern mold. 3 hours of roll, place, crimp, dry, crimp some more, dry, place on the cake, glue, arrange, ruffle and sigh.
What did I learn? Charge double for the pleated ruffle.
