Thank you for the tips Grace Feliciano! :)

thanks ate :)

My mom loved to bake, and a specialty of hers was making multi-tiered wedding cakes! She took cake decorating classes, and a few times per year she'd make a wedding cake for the event. The investeture of maybe $30 or $40 worth of cake mixes, frosting and etc., along with the acquired cake decorating tools (for making the frosting flowers, lace, etc.) she'd make these awesome cakes that would cost HUNDREDS of dollars if catered! Sometimes, the cake was her gift to the wedding party/couple. Other times, the service was bought (and at a far more reasonable price, but of serious profit)

You make an excellent point with your article.
