Friday Night Cake Club 5/10/13 - Page 2

post #16 of 45

My and I thought I was busy....

Ella, beautiful cakes, and sound yummy too.

Icubed - Post some pics 12 hrs to decorate cookies, no wonder I don't do cookies.

Brettley... they are beautiful

 

Here is another pic of my roses.  I won't be doing them next mother's day.  They take too much time.

Great to see what you are all up to.

Icubed sitting helps enormously but make sure you have a good stool or your back will pay for it.  I used to stand far to much until I converted my sewing room into a cake room.  This week I went and bought  a new chair (without arms) so I can swivel from one side of my table to the other without twisting my back all the time and roll on the castors.  Making my roses was much more pleasant than when I started them last week on a static chair.  Interestingly I could not buy a plain round stool on castors but had to buy a computer chair.  I thought round stools would be really common.

Hey, I just realised we are having Mother's Day together.  Anyone from other countries celebrating Mother's Day this Sunday.  I have noticed that quite often out special holidays like this do not coincide.

Ella: I LOVE your chocolate shavings. The cake sounds very yummy. I have tried to get the curl and still haven't mastered it yet. Maybe someday, and when I do, I am sure I will put them on everything!

 

Auntginn: I agree, roses are very time consuming. That one looks awesome!

 

Cazza: That is absolutely brilliant! I am just in the middle of building a licensed kitchen in our basement, and I have a custom-made moveable island but I never even thought of a moving chair.  I am so buying that for myself for my birthday.

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

 This is what I have been up all night doing... I just finished... It is 4:15am where I live in BC, Canada.  This might be my favorite cake so far. Thank you to all the lovely ideas I gathered from this community of creative geniuses!!  This is coconut cake with mango buttercream and raspberry lemonade cake with vanilla buttercream.  It's hard to see but the entire thing has been airbrushed with edible pearl sheen.

Cazza, love the figurines! That fury is precious!

Brettley, those cupcakes are beautiful. They look like a lot of work! And, the cake is gorgeous!

Kvand, that cake is really beautiful. Purple is so difficult & you nailed it! Elegant.

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

So, this was my week from hell. I honestly even forgot it was Mother's Day until someone told me in Thursday.

As some of you know, we moved. This was my first real week in the new house.

This week is very popular in Charleston. Weddings, graduations, & the usual birthdays. I committed to 2 grooms cakes, a graduation cake, a birthday cake, & a 5 tier weddin cake with brush embroidery & replicated dress detail. Exhausted.

Also, this is one if those weeks I kinda wish I was a but more anonymous here. I could tell a story!!



This was a last minute grooms cake. Sunday! Very humid here in charleston. Had to do those gears 3 times!

Wow loving all the pics in here, 

 

everyone has been busy this week , I am too tired to upload the camera , I have done a Winnie the Pooh themed cake , for the worst client ever , I actually threatened to cancel her order . A three tiered wedding cake including , bride , groom , cat and two dogs. The last one was a carved wooden jewelry box . I think that was actually my favourite. 

 

Well I am off to bed now I have been up since before five and it is now nearly 10pm. Everyone here has been fed , watered and medicated. ( not necessarily in that order). I will come back tomorrow and have a proper look at all the pics . Goodnight .

The College Of Charleston has a wonderful tradition. The very first day, students pass through the Cistern gate to write their names in the register. Upon graduation, they have another ceremony of passing through the gate. It was perfect inspiration for this cake:

I'm usually so meticulous about names. Not everyone can spell Laney correctly so I'm sensitive to it. Well this was a last minute order yada yada yada. Had to redo top to correct spelling.

Kvand your cake is stunning.  I bet you are feeling great about it.

Delicious you have exhausted me.  If we weren't running 2 hours behind Chelle I would be following her to bed. I must confess that I don't really get the whole steam punk look but you did a great job.

Chelle we look forward to seeing your cakes when you have the energy to upload them, especially to see the Winnie the Pooh one after all the drama.

Wow everyone's cakes look amazing, making me feel like such an amateur (technically I am since I don't sell my cakes!). 

 

I'll post when the cake is done later tonight.

 

You might look for 'doctors stool' when looking for a backless stool on wheels. That's what they're most commonly sold as. I have a computer chair at my dining table as that is where I work the most - ugly but much easier on the back than a dining chair.

Wow, everyone's pictures look great! I won't have one of mine until much later this afternoon but will post it when I'm done. I do my best work early in the morning so I'm headed off to finish!

Here are the finished cookies.  They were well-received.  I am very pleased with the finished product!  (Even avoiding the "I could have done this better...." syndrome.)

Thank you to any and everyone that provided inspiration.
