Time to brag.. post your favorite cake that you made!

post #1 of 252
Thread Starter 
Okay so I know there have been forums like this in the past but I haven't seen any recently. I know people got a kick out of posting their worst cake ever but how about posting our favorites! I am not sure which one is my favorite but I just finished one that I love so here it is...

Great cakes ladies! Well, I hated every minute of making this cake, I was hideously underpaid (my own stupid fault), but it turned out so beautifully and made the bride cry (in a good way!), that it has to rank amongst my favorites so far:

bonjovibabe, that is a fabulous castle. It is no wonder the bride cried with joy. Whatever your charged for it would not have been enough coz it looks like it was a tremendous amount of work. thumbs_up.gif

This is my recent most favourite cake...very simple but exactly what the bride wanted and one of the only cakes I have actually not been looking at going oh look at that imperfection...and this one...and this one lol. The picture makes it look a bit leaning but it was actually straight...bad camera angle

This is my favourite.

It was a surprise cake for the groom. He works as a designer for Nike in Amsterdam, and this shoe is his all-time favourite... The Nike hi-top Vandal.
He was speechless...
Thanks for looking,
Karen

Reposted it in my original post, should work now! BarbaraK, I charged 450 euros for the castle (served 120), but I also did a Cinderella carriage in cake and a gumpaste Cinderella slipper and package keepsakes (also in my photos), I charged 525 euros for the whole package - the ingredients and supplies cost me 230 euros and I spent a total of 50 hours on that cake! After I gave my quote (which the bride was horrified at, but reluctantly agreed), I asked the only other place in town who could do this kind of work what they would charge - they quoted 1200 euros for the castle ALONE icon_eek.gif . I have since discovered a few other places that will do English/American style cakes (but not in the range of scratch flavours I offer!), and the cheapest cakes start from 8 euros per serving!!! So, a hard lesson learned, but I no longer undervalue my work!

My favorite so far is this one. I think because it speaks to the girly girl in me, and because of the wonderful memories associated with it. (My wedding cake was only my second favorite, believe it or not. Shhhh Don't tell my hubby!)

Oh goodness.. I guess that would have to be my sister's baby shower cake. Still to this day it is my favorite because it was my very first topsy turvy cake and it was for such a special occasion.. and as of today it has been saved by 1000 people.. I am speechless and I never expected so many people to like the cake so much.
