BUMP!!

Hey Emma,

What ever happened with this cake?? Was she amazed or do we all need to charter a plane over there and tell her how crazy she is? LOL icon_lol.gif

I finally got an email from her and her husband a few days ago both saying they were lost for words, thought it was wonderful and haven't dared cut into it yet. As it is a fruit cake it will keep for ages anyway. However I did cook it in the grill (did I post about this bit of the disaster? Got new oven, tcake took HOURS to cook, realised I'd cooked it with just the grill on....) so I'm quite relieved they're keeping it! Thanks for your great comments guys. I sent a photo of it to a magazine here in the UK and the editor wants to sponsor me to do some training and then publish some of my stuff so I'm delighted! Couldn't have done it without all your support.

Emma, you're a bigger person than I am. I would have told him and the mother to take a hike!

OK, I'm not quite sure what training you could possibly need, your cakes are so beautiful (got room for an apprentice?!), but good luck with it all. You really deserve it thumbs_up.gif !

Wow, Emma, you think you need training? Your cakes are awesome, personally, I have a separate folder in my computer called "Emma's Cakes", I hope to be as good as you are one day.......

There are so many on this site who make beautiful cakes. I am so thankful for the inspiration I find on CC.

Thanks guys. Actually today I did my first show and in the daylight (it was outdoors) I could see SOO many terrible mistakes that just aren't visible in my kitchen, I'm going to get some daylight simulation bulbs I think. The finish onmy cakes just needs honing for publication purposes apparently - why can't they airbrush them like they do all women in magazines!

Emma that is really cool about the magazine - is it ok to ask which one? (I get some magazines from the UK) and I'd like to keep an eye out for your cake icon_smile.gif

I'd recommend the 'GE reveal' light bulbs, if you can find them. Around here they are the same price as any other name brand bulb. Their colors and brightness just can't compare even to a clear bulb, let alone a softwhite.
