Webby, that's a lot if work on those cupcakes.

CakeMommy, goodness! You were busy. Really awesome cap on the graduation cake!

Thank you guys for the compliments. I really liked this none. The potatoes were my favorite too! My husband kept saying they weren't the right color. Oh yes they are! They are boiled not fresh out of the bag. Did learn a few things. Ill do the corn a bit different next time. I know kernels aren't round but couldn't think of anything else to use. Next time, a bead mold. I didn't have one.

I had the whole thing just about finished....the. I realized it wasn't right. I had just covered the whole thing in fondant. The stuff looked weird just tossed on too. I grabbed the exacto, cut the fondant, dug out the top layer of cake, made a little angle of frosting, added some more frosting for water, & airbrushed it with silver pearl. Whew. Looks so much better .

Next time, it'll be easier & ill know to charge more! $235 next time.

It's never "just cake!"

 

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

Delicious cakes - wow I am so glad you posted price I had someone who wanted me to do a cleaning bucket with isomalt bubbles and I only quoted them $175 thankfully they declined, as it would be a lot more than that. Your cake turned out beautiful! Plus I'm sure you'll get tons more orders. Do you make the toppings potato/corn/ ect. Same day?

If I'd had advance notice, I would have made the top stuff a week in advance.

Thanks Sixinarow! It's my first time doing a heel shoe.  It took it almost 3 days for the shoe to harden enough to finish. The ruffles were not too hard -but you don't realize just how long it takes to cover that much cake ( it was just a 9" triple layer)

Thanks Auntginn!  Seriously message me if you have questions--I'm no expert but I would love to help if you need it!  =-)

Thanks Cakemommy, I was so caught up with this cake, I didn't see the message.  It's a shame because I could have used a bit of help.  I eventually figured it out.  Not perfect but I'm happy for my first one.

 

I see a tear in the frosting sheet, so gotta fix it.  What do ya'all think?

 

Six in a row, I love.... your cake.  Ice cream is my favorite dessert.

Sorry, Boyka, just saw this. I have found that if I put down a layer of butter cream and then the fruit and then cover that with another layer of butter cream it keeps the fruit from making the cake soggy. I'm sure it's too late for this cake but maybe it will help you for the next one!

LOVE the whole thing..shoe, shoebox, bag, the whole thing! 

 

You guys really pulled out the stops this week! How much fun to come back here and find so many wonderful cakes like the ice cream and the pirate ship! Love all the girly stuff too from the shoes to the ruffles to the bows! SOOO much fun!

 

I get to work on piece work this week. Hibiscus flowers and surf boards. I'm going to be working with transfer paper..anyone have any tips? I have a love/hate relationship with this new sort of stuff...love challenging myself but hate the stress it brings.

It looks GREAT!  Love the shoe box and sassy pink peep toe! We are rocking this Club--So much talent!

Thanks Cat & Cakemommy,  My niece went crazy over it.  Calmed my nerves.

 

Cat just how are you using the transfer paper?  Curious, Will you be painting on the cake?
