  • Thank you so much for the tutorial! I want to make it only 2D, lying on one side of a book. Saw your tutorial at You Tube for the book cake and learned so much tips and tricks! Thanks a lot and Greetings from Austria!

  • Sir Yerner,
    Thank you so very much for your selfless attention given to details in fun-filled tutorials.
    My only question is can one use Royal icing in place of the White chocolate in gluing. We don’t get that here

  • It’s so cute.
    I hope if you make for us the same shapes but the baby being on the air but not in a topper but with a real cake
    I really hope to learn that technique from a great teacher like you 💟
