Oh, Apti - the image seems to have dropped off. Can you repost it please!? I'd love to see it :)

 

Well, all went to plan. The cool change came through on Friday night and I was up at 7 to finish them both off. The fondant on both sweated a little but nothing like I experienced a couple of weeks back.

 

Thanks again sooo much for your help! Particularly happy with the 21st cake - here it is :)

Lovely, glad it all worked well.  I sweated through 36 degrees C with 76 percent humidity on Sunday and Monday whilst trying to ice bickies.  They looked good but the bickies went soft and by the next day half of the dry on wet techniques looked like they had been done wet on wet.  Royal icing would not set super hard.  Back to 30 today but up again at the end of the week.  I might just avoid cakes for a while.

Cazza1, I've often thought that I ought to turn decorating into a seasonal thing where I live, too! I'm just wondering why everyone doesn't just switch their birthdays, anniversaries and wedding plans to coincide with the November-February cool(ish) spell here.

 

Your cake and cupcakes are lovely, Amy7373! Very clean and crisp - none of that typical tropical melting down the sides look, hahaha.

Great job, Amy!  Looks like it was prepared in June, not Dec/January. 

 

Don't know why the pic went away.  It was a graphic of the cold north wind blowing some cool air your way.

Nice Job Amy, they look fabulous, no visible sign of heat distress at all thumbs_up.gif

Thanks for all your kind words, everyone! I've just received a beautiful e-mail from the birthday girl's mum and a $30 tip on top of the cake payment "because it was so awesome" so I'm guessing everyone was happy - phew!!!

 

Now I just have to see how the weather for the next few weekends is going to pan out. Wish us Aussies luck!!!

 

And Apti - I can see that picture in my mind. It's lovely ;)
