(Seriously, how amazing is that painting? Gorgeous!)
I have to stop the story now, or else I may never get to this next fondant-free beauty:
By crazebake cakes and cupcakes
Ok, so she's not technically a Princess, but Tink and her forest cottage here are still royally awesome.
Now, clap your hands if you believe in eating fairies!!
Wait. I think that came out wrong.
Well, it's not.
'Cuz I still have to show you this FABULOUS fishbowl design for The Princess and the Frog:
I'm thinking of asking this cake to marry me. I hope John won't mind.
Next, a cutie-patooty mini-cake:
Now, I realize that Disney has the corner on the Princess market, but we geek girls will always have a special place in our hearts for Mario's Princess Peach:
And check it out: the blue gems are handmade hard candies! Power up!
And finally, ONE SWEET TO RULE THEM ALL:
CCC Final Tally!
However, I should point out there was a distinct downward trend: the first three days of the CCC each charity had over $3,000 donated, the next five or so, around $2,000, and after that, they just barely cleared $1,000 each.
Obviously we all were very busy, and many of us were away from our computers for the holiday, so this isn't surprising. Still, if you started off the countdown but weren't able to finish, please, feel free to catch up! All twelve donation pages are still live, and your dollars can still make a huge difference. Just go to the Cake Wrecks FirstGiving page to see the complete list, along with links to give a dollar to any you might have missed.
And thank you all again for your amazing generosity. John and I are proud beyond belief to count you among our loyal Wrecky henchpersons.
Now, back to conquering the world! If you please.
Update from john: Some people think the crown on the last one is Snow White's or the Evil Queen's. However, the Queen's didn't have rubies and, from what I can tell, Snow White's is a round diamond tiara. And I'm a large, scruffy man in construction clothes sitting at the computer researching Disney Princesses. Which is pretty darned cool. -j
