Did you just say "Easy peasy"?!? Um, no. This is called, "Amanda is a genius cake." I can't even wrap my head around how to do that.

You never cease to amaze!!!

Lori @ RecipeGirl

You're a freakin' genius... this is absolutely adorable!!


Truly fabulous!!! I need to try that ruffle technique soon. LOVE. I adore how you make the insides of your cakes as awesome as the outside:) You Rock Amanda!


Those ruffles are GORGEOUS, and the ornament?!? You never cease to amaze me!!!


Perfect, Amanda, and so much fun!


This is amazing!

Just when I think I have seen it all....you go and do something even more amazing than before. What lucky people we are that you share your WONDERFULNESS with us! I have now been inspired to do some mini ruffles on some cupcakes!!! How delightful would that be??? Your the BEST!


OMG. I think you just broke my brain with the awesome!

I'm definitely going to have to work on a surprise cake during the break...


That couldn't even be any cooler! You are awesome and I seriously love that cake. Amazing! Have a great day rockstar!


You are amazing ^_*


I love this!! The soft frosting ruffles, yum!

So pretty! wonderful job, you are so creative!


you are genius!


ARe you kidding me?! This is the best looking holiday cake I have seen!! I love it. You are crazy talented!

And. . . Amanda, this is my fav cake from Martha! I have been wanting to make this and just can't seem to figure out how to do it. Guess who will be emailing for some help. :)

Alison K.

This cake is beyond fantastic!! I love all your cakes but this is my favorite by far!


Pretty much in love! You should submit this to Martha as a variation! LOVE LOVE LOVE!


Yeah, "easy peasy" was exactly what I was thinking when I saw that cake. Ahem. SO beautiful, and I'm not buying the "easy" bit for one minute! How about: made with exact precision by my oober talented hands. It's a gorgeous cake, and I love the added trees!
Hope you're having a great time in Florida--not baking cakes! (unless you're trying for huge brownie points with the extended family!) Hope this cake wins you some major kudos and awards!
