Friday Night Cake Club 3/8/13

Opening up another session of the FNCC! Everyone is welcome! This is just a place to share what you have been doing all week, share photos of your completed work, ask questions if you need help and help out those who are in need if you can. Hope to see lots of photos tonight!

Hi there!

 

This past week brought baseball cupcakes for a little 4 year olds Baseball themed birthday. I'm working on figures for a baby shower cake due soon and I have Princess cupcakes due on Sunday. So plenty to keep me busy but no photos to share yet!

 

Other than that life is baseball in my house too. Little League practice has started so I have abbreviated work days for a couple of weeks until the actual season begins...then it's weekends. 

 

Hope to hear from everyone tonight!

I made a Converse All-Star cake (Margarita flavored WASC) for my neighbor who just had a baby boy.  I brought it over with dinner.  I think it came out well, I am still always practicing.

 And now, for Friday night...I'm not baking...I'm eating the leftover cupcakes from the leftover batter...very, very bad thing...

No cake for me tonight, I tried out a new recipe that went disastrously!

Oh no! I had that happen a few weeks ago. Unfortunately I still needed to do the cake so I had to start all over again. UGH. Hope this week goes better for you!

Luckily I didn't spend a bunch on ingredients! And we don't need to eat any more cake around here, I have made 3 batches of lemon poppy scones this week working on my recipe...

After taking a few weeks off from traveling, testing recipes, and being sick, I'm finally back at it. I'm doing a 50th Birthday tool themed cake, working on trial run of Easter cookie and candy specials, and starting on a  butterfly monochrome purple cake that is due early next week.

I love tool themed cakes! The tools are challenging but when you get them right it's a blast!

Saturday here on my side of the world.  I baked some bikkies this morning, will ice them this afternoon so I can decorate them tomorrow.  Haven't quite decided what to do yet.

This is my effort from this last week.  I am really pleased with it.  It was inspired by an Anne Geddes calendar photo.  It's fruitcake so I can look at it for a few weeks before I destroy it.  I couldn't resist buying the First Impressions baby mould last year and then thought "what on earth am I going to do with this?"

Awwww...that is SO sweet! And, yes, I got the Geddes reference immediately!

Good afternoon Cat and everyone, 

 

No cakes for me personally this week , although I did help one of my students this week with her first wedding cake . 

 

Cazza that it just awesome , I love the Autumn leaves , rather appropriate as we just went into Autumn. 

 

Love the little shoes , Nora soooo cute. 

 

Kiki and Cat , I too had a disaster last week with a gluten free and dairy free cake . I had to turn around and bake again with adjustments. It did turn out fine in the end , it was the dairy free component that posed the problem , not the gluten free. 

 

Well I finally got my cakes uploaded on the computer so here is what I did last week

The wedding cake is gorgeous and Jack's cake was adorable! It's hard to remember that you all are heading into Fall as we enter into Spring!  I expected to have issues with gluten free/dairy free but found that the recipe I ended up with came out like a brownie. I guess I've been lucky tho'..that was 3 years ago and I haven't had to repeat that again! LOL!

Thanks Cat , Jack's cake was a last minute throw together, He loved it though . I was really happy with the Wedding cake , it was the first Birdcage I have done and despite all the rain and travelling four hours to deliver it , I think it turned out well. 

 

Yes it is finally getting cooler here now as we just headed into Autumn, not that it really gets Cold here in my part of the world.  IF it ever stops raining , it is a lovely time of year here.
