Kathleen, I have tried this sight, and every which way I can think of and cannot get through, any other suggestions?

It works for me every time, clicking it right in my post. Perhaps you could copy and paste and put it in the top bar? Tell me if you need more detailed instructions on how to do that. You could also use a search engine, like Google, and type in zhanna st. petersburg cakes. That is how I found this link.

Thank you Kathleen.  I am on a different computer and it worked, I think I have so much security on my lap top it prevents some things from working.  They are amazing cakes.

Much to my surprise, I never thought I’d like working with fondant, and after making this grooms cake, I enjoyed it so I’m going to practice and make a few more cakes with it, it was like Play Doh for grown ups.

Amazing cakes!  She really has a lot of talent.  Working with fondant can be kind of tricky.  I wonder if her cakes taste as good as they look.  I have had very little experience working with fondant.  The first cakes I made after I took my wilton courses, which was quite a few years ago were for my son and daughter for their birthdays.  I had made a baseball cake for my son and covered it in the Wilton fondant.  Needless to say, no one liked the fondant and ripped it off when they ate the cake.( The wilton fondant tastes horrible, but that was the only fondant I knew about back then)  That was about 8 years ago.  To this day my son, refuses to eat fondant.  Which is fine with me.  I much prefer real buttercream icing.  Every cake that I have made for people have all had buttercream or ganache frosting.  No has asked for a fondant covered cake yet. I have only used fondant for lace and appliques to place on the cake.  I have to admit though, a fondant covered cake gives you a beautiful background for really intricate designs and it can look quite elegant.
