Thank you. I haven't heard back from the bride yet so I'm going to do my best to forget about it. I went on vacation so that helped a lot! What great timing.

I haven't been able to make my Satin Ice fondant work for me. I've been trying to troubleshoot online and my problems seem to be common. I think I'll try another brand. Maybe I'll try making my own MMF. I just don't want to put the time and effort into it. It may be worth it, though!

Friends, we all have good cake days and bad cake days. The cakes I have seen in these links look fine. I have always told my students that we are our own worst critics and that if we fuss too much with a cake it will just make it worse not better.

Last week I had problems, the cake I made was for my friends daughters quinceanera. The cake arrived fine but was placed in a very warm area so the buttercream softened too much. It had that sinking look but overall it was beautiful because of the cake base I used.

This week the fondant was temperamental. It was overly soft, I used the same recipe I've used for the longest time. I added tylose to a bit of it to make a bow. It never dried. I made gumpaste to make the crown, it didn't dry either.

I had an order for a Hello Kitty birthday cake. The little girl had her heart set on a 3d hello Kitty on top of her cake. It was less than what I liked.

I improvised on all cakes but on all 3 the customers raved about the cakes. I just sigh a breath of relief that they are happy and enjoy the rest of the day.
