  3. Emily, I just love your cakes. I am not sure what I would like to see more of because you do such a good job of explaining things on your site. Keep up the good work.

  4. Hi Emily 🙂

    I would also love to see more tutorials, especially with decorating. It’s what I have the most fun and the most trouble with!! And your always look phenomenal!

  7. I’m with the rest of the bunch that loves seeing tutorials. I have been decorating for a while and when I can’t find something on sites like youtube I always go searching sites or blogs that I follow, unless they’ve tweeted it already.

    Aside from the how-tos I love seeing different cake designs and booth set ups from bridal expos since I haven’t made that jump yet.

    Now I have a new blog to follow…yay!

  8. Just want to say Happy Blogoversary! Your cakes look fantastic… love Shrek’s ears.

    BTW- Love the giveway! the items are awesome.

  10. Happy One year! Congrats on the success! I’d love to see more quick tips. Even if it isn’t a tutorial, just like one thing you learned from each cake.
