HI there everyone!

 

Well, my week was relaxing. I didn't do much all week except bake for Father's Day. I'll be decorating that one tomorrow. Here is the last cake I had last week:

 

 

And this is the photo she sent me after she set it all up for the party on Saturday.

 

I think it turned out great! What cakes are you guys doing for Father's Day? Mine is a hex 8 inch two layer with pistachio creme filling, frosted in buttercream and the top will look like a "putting green" with a hole, flag and putter. My hubby's a golfer. I'll post photos this week so you all can see!

I have a mickey mouse cake I'm making for a friend's son as a just because cake that I need to have done by Monday. Haven't even started it yet.  Can't figure out what to do yet.  It's just going to be a one tier small cake so I guess something will come to me.  It's going to be chocolate cake with cookies and crème filling.

That's adorable I do know that it's going to have to be just a one layer cake and not to terribly big. I'm going to be mailing it so it's also going to have to be flat. But I just love that cake.

Hello everyone,  Cat I love your cakes.  I'm the same way, just doing Father's Day work and they are not exciting.  The most exciting is a Black Forest Cake, Yippee!!

 

I had lots of 6" and 8" cakes, about 5 dozen cupcakes, 15 dozen chocolate covered strawberries.

 

And argh... a customer emails me and ask if she can change her order.  She wants to downsize from a qtr sheet to an 8"  The only reason I am saying yes is because I can cut the qtr sheet in 2 and I had made a few extra rounds.

 

Otherwise no way Jose!!!

 

We are almost done so  I can enjoy the day with my dad and siblings eating fried chicken at Knotts Berry Farm. Yeah........

Love your cakes Cat! 

 

Knott's Berry farm! I've always wanted to go there. One day we will make it back to the west coast. My hubby is an amusement park enthusiast and it is one of the places on his amusement park bucket list he made for me. Yep, he wants me to visit his best of the best one day. 

 

I'm doing my first wedding cake. It is fun and scary! It's hilarious because I've spent all this time trying to get the perfect looking cake, classes on fondant covering, buttercream smoothing, ganaching, and practicing so I could feel comfortable doing a wedding cake.  I finally accepted my first wedding order and they want to go rustic. It hard not to want to make it look nice, neat, and smooth. I know I'm not going to sleep tonight, wondering if the cake collapsed in the fridge. 

 

I'm also getting to do my first zebra print cake. I've also wanted to do one, but seeming as most of my cakes are for smaller kids with food allergies, the chance just hasn't been there. I can't wait to finish so I can upload the picture of this one. 

 

Finally, the kids want to make dad some "star" cookies for father's day, so I'm whipping up some shortbread cookie dough so the flavors get a chance to go through. I'll spend the day tomorrow decorating cookies with the boys after my deliveries.

Hi Cat and everyone , 

Lovely cake Cat , looked great all set up at the party. 

 

My cake for the week went yesterday , So I am haiving a Saturday off, Tomorrow I am going to be working on my competition cake for the State Cake decorating association's big show next week.  

This is the cake I did for a Graduation two Doctors a brother and sister .I really liked it , it is a gluten friendly mudcake with choc butterscotch flavoured ganache. The client however was disappointed because I put the names on the board and not on top of the cake . There was no way that many letters were going to fit on an eight inch cake. They barely fitted on the 12 inch board. I was really upset when she left as I had worked really hard to incorporate all the things she wanted into the design and she didn't even notice , just whinged about the writing.

tDovewings , Good luck with your first wedding cake . My first one was for my best friend and she wanted a rustic look too . I will check back for the pics later. 

 

Our Father's day isn't until September here. So nothing extra for that this week.

Ginn, I haven't been to Knott's since I was a kid living in LA. We are headed that way in November for my husband's 50th. Doing Disney for 3 days then gonna do a day at Knott's. He's a coaster freak so he can't wait! LOL!  

 

As for the change order, I'd have said sure but it doesn't change your price.

 

Tdovewings, I'd love to say that making wedding cakes gets easier but I have to say that I still hold my breath till I get the cake to the venue. I hate the stress but I love the look of wedding cakes so I keep on making them! LOL!

 

And I gather you mean zebra cake on the inside? I'm making one this week that it zebra on the outside! LOL!

 

Chelle, I love your cake...all those details. And how cool that they both graduated at the same time! Sorry your client wasn't as thrilled. If you had tried to put the names on the cake nothing else would have fit. SIGH.

 

This upcoming week I am making a baby shower cake. It is red velvet which I can't stand but the client is crazy about. I have one recipe I have been told is amazing, I'll take their word on that<G>. But the outside will be fun to decorate!

Tdovewings, I'm sure it is going to look great.  Your other cake works are very nice so this will be no different.

 

Chelles, Awesome cake,  I totally understand how it made you upset, but you did a great job nontheless.

 

We are not staying for the park, the restaurant while it is park of the park is on the outside.  I take my family for one big family outing during the Christmas Holidays. Toys for Tots and Knox work together to get donations of toys.  You buy a toy from their list which cost you a fraction of the cost but you get admission to the park.  A true Win Win for everyone.

 

Anyway, we're just going for their famous chicken dinner.
