    these were wonderfully inspiring – I was originally content to make a lot of miniature nail polish bottles and handbags but after your brilliant tutorial I made masses to put on my daughter’s birthday cupcakes and a larger one for a cake.
    My daughter adored them – thank you!
    All the very best for future inspirations.

  9. This tutorial is so well done. You explained everything in a way anyone can do this… easy to follow directions. I was just so amazed. I kept saying to my husband, throughout the video, Honey, this is unbelievable. I know I can do this! I used to be a cake decorator… many moons ago. 🙂 Thank you for taking the time to teach all of us who are watching this tutorial. And, it was so kind of you to supply us with the template.
