Friday Night Cake Club called to order! Come on in and tell us what you're working on!

 

I know I opened a little early this tonight but I'm coloring several shades of green and blue fondant for a cake and I was between colors...I'm almost done, though, so I'll be back in a bit!

Hi Elcee, Yes, was surprised to see it open, but its Mother's Day.  Am taking a break from all my cake pop roses and other goodies.

 

I get 2 Mother's Day.  Today is Mexican (an anybody other Hispanic culture) Mother's Day and then on Sunday our own.  So its a double whammy for me.

 

Cakes are all done, Lots of 6"'s,  chocolate filled cups, cookies, push pops & now just these monster cake pop roses.

Not sure why I took on so much work Mother's day weekend. But I'm having fun doing it.  I usually do fondant lettering on my cakes, but tonight, I'm piping everything. Not sure why I picked this week to be crazy. Piping lettering in red on a white cake? Yep, I'm insane, especially when I have the worst handwriting ever. 

 

Next week I'll be back to punching out all my letters with Tappits, because I am ruining my cakes with my piping. 

 

I'm doing a mother's day cake with cupcakes, a 1st communion cake, and a 3rd birthday skylander's portal cake. Done with #1, about to finish up #2, and the skylander's cake will get done tomorrow.

 

Have a great night!

I'm doing a 4th birthday cake for Sunday, 8" chocolate and 10" inch vanilla, with fondant grass wrapped around it, and some flowers and bugs attached. The last layer is in the oven right now, and these are the decorations I made yesterday.

Hi guys, I'm exhausted already listening to what you have lined up. tdove you are very brave (?) piping red on white.  I have spent the week playing with those cabbage roses that Maggie Austin makes.  They look acceptable and will probably look better when they have been airbrushed as they are just white at the moment.

This is my stoned giraffe, that looks more like a baby dragon, and my Viking fairy that I made at my workshop the other week.  Fun times.  Have a good week everyone.

cazza1: I think he looks like a giraffe- he's just a bit loopy. Call it a sugar high. lol

 

I'm making calla lilies for a cake next Friday. It's going to be cool and wet here so I want plenty of time for them to dry.

 

I tried making gelatin gummies today and so far, so good. I don't know if they'll stand up to heat, humidity, and hanging, though. I only have a week to experiment with it then I have to start on the cake for it. I need something that looks like blood dripping from an arm and hand. I tried Sugarveil but I was a total failure with that this week. I'll have to try it again some other time.

Wow! You all are busy! I'm working on a fishing themed cake for a 4 year old. All the little pieces are done, river rocks, cat o' nine tails, goldfish, frogs, and ducks. Cake is torted, filed, iced and ready for fondant and decorating in the morning.  

 

Auntginn, happy 1st Mother's Day!

 

tdovewings, I keep saying I need to practice my piping but never seen to get around to actually doing it. It's been a long time since I wrote on a cake.

 

kikiandkyle, I just love it when all the little pieces of the cake are ready to go and it's time to start decorating.

 

cazza1, your figures are adorable!

 

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's cakes!

Do you have time to get to a Michael's or Joanne's? The Wilton plastic tubes are compatible with the SPS plates. I used them when my cake was a little too short and it was fine. Good luck!

Good Evening everyone!

 

My week is INSANE! I Should have known better but I never seem to learn.. haha. I was well prepared I think though. Going to be somewhat of a long night, but i work better at night.

 

I do cupcake promos every time a holiday of some sort comes around, so I have 15 doz standard and I think like 20 dozen minis... I don't even know anymore. I also have 18 angry birds, 18 owls and 24 elephant cupcakes. Elephant cupcakes have a 6" cake, Daisy flower Pot cake, Red Velvet 6" Mom's day cake AND that's all for tomorrow. All of the toppers are made, I just have to get my butt in gear and start frosting those darn cupcakes. AND I had a Zebra/Cheetah party for today as well. That is gone  though, thankfully:)

Cazza: Those figures are awesome!

 

Kikiandkyle: Hope I catch the final product on here. I usually try to make it back Saturdays and Sundays but sometimes my mind gets away with me.

 

Elcee: Can't wait to see it

A compromise is the art of dividing a cake in such a way that everyone believes he has the biggest piece.

Just finished two cookie platters (about 14 cookies each) for a grandpa's 70th/young lady's 16th.  These are freebies, which I spent abou 12 hours decorating!   Each one is custom cut and decorated.  Golf for Grandpa and Car/keys/tennis/etc for young lady.  I am very pleased with them, just have to put messages on the center plaque cookies, and plate them up in the morning.

 

One of these days, I need to learn to decorate sitting down, 'cause my legs they do hurt tonight!!
