Friday Night Cake Club 3/29/13 - Page 2

post #16 of 28

No cake for me this week , although I did book two large cakes from the Marine themed semi freebie last week. I must say my niece really does work for her discount. 

 

I did two Easter workshops with the Cake Association , We decorated Chocolate Easter eggs with royal icing and fondant. So they are already to go for the family lunch tomorrow. 

 

Yesterday we had our traditional family gathering for Good Friday , this involves a Seafood BBQ for us with extended family and friends. My niece wanted to hold it at her house this year , my sister and I were quite happy with this idea as usually we take it turn about.  All I had to do was make a nice Asian inspired prawn salad, easy peasy. 

 

It is out to lunch tomorrow with just close family for Easter Sunday , It is also my niece and her Husbands first wedding anniversary , so it will be a double celebration. 

 

 

So Happy Easter everyone .

Hi everyone, Haven't beeb here for awile.  Been busy and away not really working on cakes on Friday nites. lol.  This week making a giant 7lb white chocolate Easter Bunny.

Very Cute cow cake , I like the use of the squiggle impression mat. 

 

Vgcea , I make a lot of  fruit cakes. Mine is more fruit than cake though. I don't use much candied fruit though. I do use a lot of different dried fruits and I soak them for a couple of weeks in booze of course.  I like to put chrystalised ginger in mine and prunes , I also put marmalade instead of using candied peel.

Loving the cow cake - so cute!

 

Tonight just working on some sugar brooches for a wedding cake due on Monday.  I can't decide which one I like best....  what do you guys think??  I'm leaning more towards the goldy one I think (top right).

 

It will be on it's own on the middle tier of a three tier cake that will be topped with a large sugar rose and just have lace around each tier and some simple pearl piping.

I soaked this particular batch of fruits in brandy for a year-- the 1 year minimum is typical for caribbean black cake-- and used crystallized ginger along with dried pineapples, cranberries, and a host of other good stuff. I've never thought to try marmalade, such a good idea, that definitely tastes better than those weird candied fruits. I have found though that there are higher quality candied fruits that cost a grip and are worlds better than the ones in grocery stores. The candied orange peel we use for bonbons in my Chocolatier class is 9000 times better than any orange peel I've bought in the grocery store. *Now that I think about it, I totally should look on the packaging for the maker when next I'm in class*

 It will probably not taste very fresh because I was practicing on it for awhile, but my family, a.k.a my fan club,  will think it tastes good.  icon_biggrin.gif


Super cute!  Are your roses made out of gumpaste?  They look good.  =-)

Here is the cross cake.  The next one will be perfect, but I am happy with the design of this one.  Ignore the writing, once again, I was practicing my lettering.  It will say God Bless Eva on the real cake.

It's probably so stale because I spent so much time practicing on it, but my family, a.k.a my fan club, will like it. icon_biggrin.gif

But it is perfect for Easter, or baptisms or any other church related themes.
