I used to make an awful lot of cakes for friends, family and acquaintences when my husband was stationed in Germany; wedding cakes, christening cakes, birthday cakes, you name it I did it and thoroughly enjoyed it. At one point I was even teaching cake icing. This was great for expressing my artistic leaning and tasted good too! My cakes were fun, thoughtful (I always asked what the recipient liked, fav colour, hobbies etc) and made with a lot of love. Not once did I get a cake returned or a complaint. I miss this but have moved on to other things now.
