Hi everyone!   Just the one cake this week...paintball for my son's 13th birthday. He actually turned 13 a month ago but we had a family graduation on the weekend we would have normally celebrated so we did a small family dinner on his actual birthday and now we are having the party. The guys are going to go play paintball in the morning and then we are having a pizza parlor lunch after. In our family the "big" birthdays are #1, #5, #10, #13 and for the girls #16 and the...
Opening up another session of the FNCC! Everyone is welcome to share their week, photos of their work, ask for help or provide help if they can!   Cat
Nadia, I totally understand the working on a cake while feeling unwell. I hate that feeling because I know it's not my best work and I hate to have to let go of something I know isn't my best. However I totally love this cake. I'm going to guess this is "Frozen" based? It's truly lovely. I know my Frozen obsessed granddaughter would simply go crazy over it!  The one thing we need to remember is that no one else knows what it was "supposed" to look like...only what it does...
Seriously don't blame you. After yesterdays event I'm still suffering the "hangover". Hope you get a few hours grace before the demands begin again! LOL!
I saw the cake on Facebook! Wow! Incredible creation. Just don't know how you withstood renovation AND made a 3 tier cake too. Makes me sound like a wimp when I say I'm not taking cake orders next May or June because we are moving. LOL!
Cara...l love the dumbells...the ones with the handles!  I think it's harder to do a one tier cake than a bigger one myself. Seems to limit the creativity. I think you did a wonderful job here.
Ana...glad your project is able to continue now that the artist has consented! That is fun to be excited about a cake!   Remnant, I always love coming back in on Saturday morning just to see who has posted cakes. But I also love finding out what is going on in all of your lives.    Cazza...I hate doing human figurines...I would imagine Elves would be much the same. But I love learning new flowers! Hope you will share some of those as you learn how to do...
Hi everyone,   Cassie! Love your grad cakes! What a great idea on the cap! I've used the ball pan for fondant before but never with chocolate...I will have to remember that for the future! GREAT tip!   Well, I worked my butt off but the event was a success. I've been to a lot of End of the Year parties but this one was simply great! The people hosting were wonderful to work with and every single member of the team showed up. Here is the cake! (got another order from it...
Thanks for your input...glad I'm not the only one who has crazy clueless families! And yes, no one knows what goes into a cake...not even a "simple" one much less a really ornate one. And speaking of ornate...   ANA! I think you did the most awesome job! What a whole mess of subject matter that you put very cleanly on that cake! It really could have been a jumbled mess and yet you managed to make a very clean lined cake that got it all across very well. As for the "logo"...
Hi everyone,   Just one cake this week. I was hired by my son's little league for their end of the year party to make a cake. All of the parents pitched in for me to make the cake. Of course they got a great discount too! LOL! Since I live in a cave that, due to the heat wave we are presently suffering through in Northern California, stays a cave all day long, photos will have to wait till set up tomorrow at the party. I'll take them tomorrow morning and post them in the...
