Day 7 and the last of my week of cakes.  For this one I made a tile/mosaic cake theme.  It turned out to be a bit Native American looking, though that wasn’t planned.  I adore this cake personally. I chose

Day 6: Simple Curtain

I’ve started doing voice acting/over work and I needed something to cover the big huge mirror in the walk-in closet I use to record. I dug out some old black silk I had left over from making a king-size duvet
