Friday Night Cake Club for 5/31/13 - Page 2

post #16 of 25

Good Evening everyone!

 

Congrats Cat, that is soo awesome, I can't wait to see it! I will for sure buy the digital issue!

 

CakeDDC I swear by them too. I find they work best when the fondant is dry...not tacky or sticky.  I use lots of powdered sugar on the table, both sides of the thinly rolled fondant and I even dip the letter I am about to use in the powdered sugar. Brush off the sugar with a paint brush after they firm up a bit. And Voila that should do it.

 

Elcee: Looks fantastic! I am SURE I would have had a ton of tears around the nose and tail for that one. I read your comments on another topic you had posted on; Water with the fondant fixes tears..... do tell! I have never heard of that before and I am so very intrigued:)

 

Sixinarow: I LOVE pirates! I don't know anything about it:) sorry.

 

This week is a little slower I guess. Delivered a Lorax cake and a Big Bow cake this morning. The big bow was inspired by Royal Bakeries purple one. Customer sent me the picture but want it pink and green. Working on a Thomas the train right now. Cake is filled and smoothed and anxiously awaiting decorations. I will do that in the am though as the cake is not due until mid afternoon. Other than that, just have a couple Ladybug and Daisy Cupcake orders and a giant cupcake. But they are basically finished as well.

 

.

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

Thanx Ginn!

 

I have no weeks off this month. June is my crazy month. It started out as not so bad...4 cakes, busy but not crazy. Then a client changed her date to the last day of June AND a baby shower cake got added...now it's 6 cakes and one of those is being made in a borrowed kitchen out of town. SIGH. The upside is that I will have a lot of work to share with everyone this month! LOL!

I Was working on a Mr Tumble cake for a friend's twins' birthday.  I really struggled to get the figure to work as I didn't want to make it out of gumpaste in case the girls wanted to eat it, but I was ill the day I should have made it and the fondant didn't dry as much as needed so he ended up looking a bit more drunk than clown!  Never mind - my friend was thrilled!

Brettley, it doesn't really fix them, but it's a way to hide small flaws in your fondant. Most of the time it's not worth the hassle unless it's a competition cake or something that needs to be perfect. Just melt a little fondant and water until it gets very soft, almost liquid and use it to fill in the flaws and them smooth it with a small palette knife or fondant smoother. 

 

You're cakes are fantastic. I love your work!

 

Cat, I got the magazine last night...great cake and great theme! Beatrix Potter stories were my daughter's favorite when she was little. She especially loved Mrs. Tiggywinkle.

I have no idea who Mr. Tumble is but I think your cake is totally cute. I love the cake/cupcake presentation too! I hate using gumpaste as well so I usually make my figures at least 2 weeks ahead of time out of fondant so they have time to really dry. That way if someone wants to eat the figure then I know it will taste good.

Thank you Gerle and Elcee! This months magazine is wonderful....not just because of my cake...but because of the Beatrix Potter theme and how many cakes they featured!! It's a wonderful collection for any Beatrix Potter fan to enjoy. However, I'm simply thrilled my cake and my little "guys" made it into the magazine!

Cakeddc, that robin is precious.

Sixinarow, that is just adorable!

Elcee, wow! Amazing as usual.

Brettley? That sweet cake makes me wish I had a daughter. Love those colors.

Lizzie, that cake is just too cute!

Great cakes this week!

My week was filled with Charleston Brodal association spread. I made a small 2 tier with dogwoods, triple chocolate espresso cookies, decorated sugar cookies, peanut butter cheesecakes, & key line cheesecakes.
