I am so excited / nervous/ envious for all of you! Say hello to Duff for me and tell him my sister wants to marry him......He's cute but not THAT cute. I think she loves him for his cakes!

How about if we plan on meeting for breakfast at 9 AM? Is that too early/late for anyone? There is a breakfast restaurant just a minute or two away from Cliffbreakers called Spring Garden Family Restaurant. It's at 411E Riverside Blvd, Loves Park Illinois, 61111, phone #(815)-282-0212. From Cliffbreakers, you will turn right (towards the river) and go about 1/2 mile or so. It will be on the right side of the street, just before the intersection of Riverside Blvd and N. 2nd St. It's not super classy, but it is budget friendly and the food is pretty good.
Please PM me if you're interested so I can make a reservation. Feel free to still join us if you forget to PM me, but I want to make sure we aren't stuck waiting for a large table.

oh no! have a drink, relax, and try again!

My DH and I can try and make breakfast. Let me know if it is a go! I will check again in the morning before we leave. Otherwise we might just show up regardless.

So how many of us will be there?

Do we want to list it out? I would love to meet some of you all tomorrow during set up. I plan to get there close to 5 and it will probably take me a while to set up.

My name is Barbara and I am in Middleton (madison, wi). Since it's just hours before set up... I am doing a "Totally Awesome Halloween" cake - look for the cake with skeleton hands and you should be able to find me (unless someone else has sketon hands).

Hey!
I'm doing a totally awesome Halloween cake too!
Mine is sort of "Tim Burton meets Mary Engelbreit" and it is on the tall side...

See you tomorrow !

Cool!!! My kids love NMBC!

Mine is a tribute to sugar and the Discovery Center slogan which is :Where Learning Comes to Life. So my cake is sugar coming to life from a molecule to a baked cake. It's (hopefully, not finished yet) 6 tiers tall.

I'm hopeful to still make it, but I just got home from the hospital and it's not certain if my Grandma will make it through the night, so please say a prayer for her Ladies!! Her name is Betty (I'm Elizabeth, named after her) and she is such a dear sweet woman, I'm not ready to give her up yet.

I have another cake to set up at 5, so I'll probably be there closer to 6ish to set up at the museum. Oh, and I didn't get the purple in my hair today, but OMG, it is really obnoxious. More than I really wanted or usually have, so please don't think I'm a freak when you see it!! LOL

after reading this whole thread I hope you all update us and post you pics from the contest. Now I am really excited to see how they turn out! Good Luck to you all!
post #146 of 201
Okay after listening to your cake ideas...I'm scared! They sound awesome! Oh well, no time for anything else now!

I'll probably get there around 5ish too. My name is Merissa and I am 32 with dark brown hair. Just sort of average/normal looking! LOL. We will probably just plan on going to the breakfast place around 9. I don't know if there is a plan for that or not. I probably wont be able to check back here again before I leave today.

Good luck with the setting up!

BTW: Elizabeth, I will be thinking of you and your grandma.

OMG you guys! I am sitting here just laughing at my "cake". The fondant is all cracked, seams are ripped, things are lopsided. I would have to say, this is my WORST cake thus far! Of course it is. The best cakes are always the ones that don't really matter! icon_smile.gif

I was just swamped this week with cake and cookie orders so I couldn't even start on this until late yesterday afternoon! I did Mickey and Minnie Mouse on vacation but really wanted to do this cool wizard of oz idea I had. No time though. I may very well keep this "caketastophe" in the car when I see your awesome cakes! My husband can't believe I am even going to take it out of the house and my Mom says "just say your kids did the cake!"

Uh, yeah...that bad! Hee hee, at least I am laughing about it! If I don't run into you all tonight, I will be at breakfst in the morning. I am bringing my Mom with me cuz she LOVES the show. Ok, take care everyone!

Awe... I am sure it's not that bad. I was having MAJOR issues too - my fondant seams were VERY visable, and it just wasn't turning into *my* vision*, but everything has come together fairly well. I was feeling REALLY crappy about 1/2 way through. Even my husband was giving me a lecture on how I am not some cake godess - he could see that it just wasn't happening.

Now... if it can make it down I 39 without dying, I will be happy.

Good luck!

I am home! Phew...

There were some impressive cakes there!!!

I have my sad little cake in this post. Poor thing looks tiny compared to the 6' cake next to it. Oh well...

I really enjoyed seeing all the cakes. I have to admit that my favorite was another member here - the one who did the Tim Burton meets Mary Englebriet. I like it lots icon_lol.gif

I have some pictures up in my flickr account (I am not sure if I should post it or not though) and will post more when we get back from Rockford tomorrow evening.
