Great photos everyone. I want to thank everyone for sharing their images and bring back a little magic into our lives, as people like me sit at work. Why is it the castle can bring back so many memories?
I remember the cake castle and remember thinking it was cool that they put so much work into it... but just because you put a lot of work into it doesn't make it look good.
Also, I was a little let down by the whole Stitch vandalizing idea. Something about it bothered me... and what they did wasn't really that great. I was expecting more.

Although I thought the pink cake was cool (they could have used a different color), I thought the gold spirals, bunting, and characters was the worst looking. It was so cluttered and over-done. Plus the color cordination was WAY off. The gold decor and faded blue and grey exterior did not blend well at all. The mirror was way too large as well.
Had a CM on a tour tell me something interesting about the cake makeover - the FIGURED the pink would fade into a nice pastel. They were a bit taken aback when it didn't - and contacted the manufacturer of the paint. Apparantly they were sold REALLY high-quality stuff. But the intent had been for it to fade in nicely, not stay all bright pink. Whooops.
