Opening up another session of the FNCC! Who's up? Whatcha workin' on?
This week I only had one cake, a Penguin Birthday Cake. I had such fun making the penguins and the snowmen they were decorating. I put the entire cake together this afternoon so it is done now and ready for a Sunday morning delivery. I'm going to appreciate this easy week come next week when I have not only a wedding cake but Office party treats to make as well. I will post photos of the Penguin cake on Sunday!
What is up in your neck of the woods?
Good Evening Cat and all, It has been quite a while since I have posted, things have been overwhelmingly busy, but its great! I opened an actual shop a few weeks ago and things have completely exploded since. I am really the only one in my area that does the kind of cakes that I do and apparently people are loving it! Which is great, I couldn't be happier.
Delivered 10 dozen cupcakes this morning, and I have a smash cake, 2 tire cakes for twin boys, a beach cake for 50 and 2 giant cupcakes all for tomorrow. Shouldn't be to late of a night, they are all pretty close to being done.
I will look for your penguin cake! I LOVE penguins they are soo adorable.
I stacked, carved and crumbcoated a cake for a competition on Sunday. Can't wait to decorate it tomorrow. Actually, I have mixed feelings... I've been putting every spare minute into it for the past 2 weeks; I'll be really glad to be done with it even though I'm excited about it. It's a decoraing contest but involves tasting, too so I have to make a small tasting cake. I also entered the cupcake competition. I bit off almost more than I can chew with this.
shanienee, I'd love a reason to make a candy land cake :). Brettley, congrats on your shop! Cat, I can't wait to see your penguin cake.
Elcee...so you are decorating a cake on a dummy form and then presenting a cutting cake too? Interesting! I keep saying I'm going to enter a competition but never have. Most of my issue is that there are none near me so I'd have to travel a LONG way just to compete! Let us know how it goes!
I am a one woman show.... I don't have a storefront, so maybe shop isn't the right word. Just a kitchen for now. I want to see how this goes first before I decide to do an actual storefront. Have to keep the costs low for now. See how things pan out. There is definitely room for a storefront, someday I hope.
Elcee: I hope you post pictures, I am looking forward to seeing them. You do such beautiful work. I wish we had comptetitions and stuff like that where I am from. Maybe someday.
