Friday Night Cake Club 3/8/13 - Page 2

My favorite part of the birdcage was the small piped birdcage! Loved it! 

 

I am on the West Coast of the US and Spring arrived about mid February. That's really early for us. Good for the weather but bad for allergies. Meanwhile it's nowhere close to Spring on the East Coast where they just got another 2 feet of snow today.

Love the bird cage.  I had already checked it out on your facebook page.  Was Jack's cake done with edible images?  Did you print them yourself?

You wouldn't know it was Autumn in my part of the world.  We have been close to 40 every day this last week and the only rain we have seen since last year was  5 drops (I counted them) this morning when I went for a walk on the beach.  They keep promising us rain but it's almost like there is a big bubble over us.  Surrounding places and even the other side of town are getting it but not us.

I love the birdcages on the bottom tier too , they are royal icing stencilled then overpiped and hand painted in lustre mixed with alcohol .   I used them as an inspiration for the top cage.  

 

 

Yes Jack's cake is an edible image , I have a friend I work with closely that prints them for me. I was going to do a 3D image but ran out of time , the image was the last minute fall back. It is amazing what an image and a bit of piping comes up looking like.

Cazza , you can have some of our rain if you like , we are thoroughly sick of it. Noosa was a nightmare last week, it just didn't stop.

I am still up working. I hate to be in my bakery all by myself, so I put it off all week, and then company invited it's self over, and asked me to babysit tomorrow (while he and DH go skateboarding, our little boys are 10 months apart and will play together) and all night (why??), so my DH was straightening the house, and I was still all alone:-(  Now he has gone to bed :cry: 

 

i am doing a 6" cake with an owl on top and quilted sides, and 24 cupcakes. It is taking forever! And I am doing all the cupcakes and owl and branch and flowers in modeling chocolate. It is only my second time working with it, and the first time was 6 years ago! I will post tomorrow sometime...well, later today! 

 

And now I have VIOLENT HICCUPS!!! And I wanna go to bed! 

 

I love that edible image cake for Jack, but I must say the thumbnail for the vaguely flesh colored cake with the rounded top made me do a double take! When I looked the second time, I realized it wasn't what I thought it was, and had a closer look ;-) it is very lovely! I love the flowers and the piped birdcage! And those shoes were adorable!

Oh, and we just had 4" of snow 3 days ago, and yesterday was 58° F so it was muddy and squishy out, and our yard is a mess! I walked up to the bus stop to get my daughter , barefoot, and in short sleeves, and it felt great! I can't wait for warm weather, though it hasn't been that bad. I have arthritis, so I get all achy.

Damn it just rained for all of 3 minutes, and quite heavily.  Not enough to do any good.  Just enough to rocket the humidity.  I had just flooded my bickies too.  Last time I played with bickies the humidity was really high and the dry on wet technique ended up looking like wet on wet. I'll be POd if this happens again tomorrow.
