Hi Nancy, I just love all the cakes you have on your web-site. My 8 year old son is making his First Holy Communion on May 14 and I would just love to make a cake for his party instead of ordering one. Do you have any ideas for decorating one in a very unique way. I really want it to be special and I am starting to get very discouraged. Thank you so very much and keep doing what you do it's just great work.
