Anyway, my reason for posting is this.....I like the simple but sophisticated look - how do you think I can improve on last years cake

Hey everyone! Me again.............I have now baked 3 cakes as friends and family want one too. So, my question to you fellow cake bakers - I know I should 'feed' my cake once a week but, for how many weeks usually? For the life of me I cannot remember back to last year.

I baked on the 9th Nov last year, marzipanned on 20th Dec and Iced on 21st. Didn't really want to leave it that late this year.

What do you think? xx

Very beautiful...I see no need for improvements. But I would suggest contacting Christmasstar (she's another cake decorate here on MMC) She may have some other ideas for you. Great job it looks wonderful.
