Customer Reviews

Minimalist Gold Cake is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots of fun This project is perfect for a rainy day with the kids. I had a great time with my 15 year old and she enjoyed it too. The end result was great and definitely makes my house look more ready for Thanksgiving! Will definitely do this again for other holidays but just change the color scheme.
