I did it. I finished the cake, in time for the Finanekids' party yesterday.

No matter that it took wayyyy longer than I expected. No matter that (almost) each leaf is strategically placed to hide a mistake.

Still, it was a lot of fun. I think I learned a little more about making my own fondant, gum paste and royal icing. Hopefully, when I try it again, things will go a little quicker.

I wonder if anyone actually ate the mice.

Their tails did not survive being put on the cake. I'll just blame that on the farmer's wife and her carving knife.
