wow. it's really hard to go back and do neuland even halfway close to what it is supposed to be. i'll try to dig out samples of when i first learned it to see if it was better than this. i sure hope so. however, you can see all the tips and tricks to disguise the imperfections. drop shadows and flowers. also, start with the lightest color possible for the lettering. let the decorations work for you. sort of like taking the TV dinner out of the tray and putting it on china. the guests will never know. OK, that is not an original idea. i got it from phylis diller about 50 years ago. she also recommends serving dinner about two hours later than expected as *starving people will eat anything.* guess i should start a food blog, eh?
