    Hi Megan, just wanted to say thank you so much for this tutorial. Really helpful and I am so excited to send out my first email. It was shared by a fellow cake artist, Meghan Martinez and she said you love local to her which is brill.

    I had the same problem with not being able to make the table disappear. I switched to Google Docs and was able to do it that way.

    Hope this helps anyone with the same problem in the future.
