Friday Night Cake Club 7/13/12 - Page 2

LOL..I love how many of us are not really "working" on a cake but still working...

I have made lots of bows but the catch is always timing. If you have several days for the bow to dry then go for pure fondant. If you only have a few days then fondant with tylose or gumpaste. If you need it to be dry by tomorrow the pure gumpaste.

My flowers are doing ok..not happy with the orchid...thinking about redoing that one.

First time I've had the opportunity to post to FNCC. Usually I'm deep in the crumbs, but I seem to have got out ahead of the cake wave this week! I am working on a 3D BMW race car, have finished a tackle box and a rose cake today! Just finishing touches, will actually get to go to bed on a Friday night for the first time since April!

Tammy,

That was me last year! I actually baked in time off this summer. Not as much money but I have my sanity! LOL!

You are so right. As I mentioned..I'm working on pieces to a demo cake on a week I took "off". Part madness I'm sure!

Calling it a night now and heading off to bed. I got 4 done that I actually like but ended up trashing two that I just wouldn't be proud of. Thank goodness the flowers are all for the demo so I have lots of time to mess with the sugar work until I'm happy with it!

Night y'all!

I don't have a cake this week either, but I am working on my entries for the Local Show . I also have been recipe testing , developing a lemon mudcake, not entirely happy with the result yet so I have made my notes and will try again next week. Meanwhile my niece was quite happy to take away my test cakes for her houseguests .

I guess somewhere or other in the next week I will have to find time to do the work for my demonstration at the State Show , and the prep work for the next workshops I am running so I guess a week off is never really a week off is it?

Yeah, I always go into a "vacation" week with the idea that I'm not actually going to work on any form of cake but it never works out that way unless I go away somewhere. I'm always working on one aspect or the other.
