DBTP:How long does it take to prepare and make a dmb cake?
KIM: Probably a lot longer than it should. It all depends on your colors and detail. The norm is about 4-6 hours, baking time included.
DBTP:What inspired you to start make the cakes?
KIM: Curiosity. Normally...I decorate while jammin to DMB...so I guess I just decided to see how "sweet" it was to throw the two together. :)
DBTP:Who eats these cakes?
KIM: ME! Just kidding...actually...I can't bring myself to cut one of them. I usually give them to a member of my family or the hubby takes them to work...BUT, thanks to Myspace, I've had a couple of orders for DMB cakes.
DBTP: Which cake is your favorite and/or which one do you think came out the best?
KIM: I don't really have a favorite. I'm just thrilled that I made something and folks could actually tell who it was. :)
