No cakes for me this weekend, but I love both green cakes, and the button cake.

Hi Cat and everyone,  I had to drive four hours in the rain to deliver a wedding cake this week. I also did a Raa Raa the lion cake for my Great Nephew ( also driven the four hours ) .

 

It was quite an experience this week with the weather really against me . I travelled the cake in two parts as I didn't want to risk it tumbling . The unit at the resort we are staying in , the aircon broke down , now it is humid , hot and raining and I am trying to finish the damn cake . All I can say is thank God that the flowerpaste I make holds up in this weather. I delivered the cake and it made it all the way through the reception and when the Bride visited this morning she couldn't thank me enough.

 

The Raa Raa the lion cake was a hit as well , ( I did cheat with an edible image for that one ) . Desperate times call for desperate measures particularly with travel considerations and time restraints.

 

It is still raining , I don't think it is ever going to stop .  I think I am getting webbing between my toes .

 

Some great cakes in here this week .

 

Mine is on my Face book page , I tried to upload a couple of times  from the phone but it kind of went haywire.

Chelle's Cake Couture is the name of the page if any one is interested , it is the Birdcage cake . 

 

Well my little holiday finished tomorrow , it will probably stop raining by then I guess however I won't be counting on it . Happy Icing everyone,

Chelle.

Well, between Lent, and the fact that my weight is up a few pounds (having to take quadruple-strength ibuprofen for my recent dental extraction meant lots of snacks!), I haven't been eating sweets since Fat Tuesday. And the eggs in the refrigerator are getting a bit stale, and it's a pain in the butt to drive all the way to the nearest Bristol Farms after Davidson's Pasteurized Eggs, so about the only thing I could bake is a couple rolls of refrigerator cookies in the freezer (which I'm about to thaw out as soon as I click "Submit").


But I did get the final picture I needed for my 51st birthday cake in June: PD photographs of Squad 51 and Engine 51 are available on Wikimedia Commons, but the Wikimedia Commons picture of Station 127 (where all the Station 51 exteriors for Emergency! were filmed) is not PD. So on my way home from a day of docenting at the International Printing Museum, I stopped by the station, and took 4 pictures, then modified the best one in GIMP, to remove the power line, and change the station number to "51" (it still says "Robert A. Cinader Memorial Fire Station"). This morning, I worked out sizes and layouts so that I can just squeeze 2 of each graphic element (so I have a spare) onto a single sheet of edible printing media.
