Happy Canada Day to you, my friend!! The Maple Leaf Cakes are stunning! I am such a non TV watcher so can you please give me the exact time and "place" for the ET Show on Thursday! Don't want to miss it!

Thank you ladies for all the wonderful comments!

Beaches - One of my cakes will appear on ET Canada on July 2nd at 7pm. Its on Global, Channel 6 or Cable 3.

BellaLovesPink - I did the embossing of the word with the "Wilton Block Letter Press Set" I guess it really is a stencil that you would write over with buttercream, but I like to use it as an embosser.

I love the cakes. Did you color the fondant red or you just got it in red already?

Happy 4th of July!

Pink Little Cake - In the past I would dye my own fondant, but it really changes the consistency of it. This time I did buy red fondant, but it was really dark like a deep chinese red. So, I added some white fondant to lighten it a bit.
