Hi there! Glad to see you posting here! Love the cakes and cupcakes but my favorite is the top one. So very girly and sweet!
Good Evening everyone,
I have my first EVER square buttercream wedding cake for tomorrow..... My nerves are going bonkers. "Knock on wood" All 3 tiers are frosted, filled and smoothed and in the fridge ready to be stacked tomorrow am. I am Sooo nervous I likely won't sleep tonight worrying about every possible bad thing that could happen. I really am not sure why I am stressing as i have done several round tiered buttercream cakes.... Ugh who knows. Other than that I have a Camo wedding cake with 8 dozen cupcakes and a close friends Oil Rig birthday cake for tomorrow evening. I am very much looking forward to an evening of friends. It has been a long few weeks and the next few are going to be even longer.
Cat: That Mickey cake is so happy looking. I know that sounds silly but I am not really sure how to describe it otherwise. I would also say the same thing about the change in order size on such short notice.
Jadelogic: I LOVE those cakes. So pretty.
Chelle: The cake looks great, such a shame that they were disappointed about something so minute. You should email her the cake wrecks blog:) Haha
Thanks Ladies for the advice, I didn't give her that much off, I do want her to be happy tho because she gave me 2 other orders. I got her deposit but trust me it won't be happening to often. The other cake I will split and make more money from it in the long run.
Jadelogic, Beautiful little cake, with the bow and all, nice cupcakes,
Brettley, you do nice work so your cake is going to be gorgeous.
Lakeylake, oh... German Chocolate, haven't had any in the longest time and your looks scrumptious.
As I said, I never really sleep the night before a wedding cake delivery. In fact, we have a little routine where, once we have delivered the cake, we get back in the car, high five each other and say "Made it to the Judging table!" LOL!
Thanks about the Mickey cake. Parker was overjoyed, just kept pointing and yelling MICK MICK MICK over and over again with the biggest smile. When it came time to eat a piece he decided to go hands free and just stick his face into his plate...hysterical!
I only have one more wedding cake this summer. I took a good deal of the summer off for a move that isn't going to happen now (deal fell through today) but have lots of birthday cakes and one anniversary cake that will be a lot like a wedding cake. I'm sure now that I'm available I will have those free weeks booked in no time. If not then I'll have more demo cake time and that is always a good thing.
I'm off to bed now...I'll check back in tomorrow morning and hope that even more people will have stopped by and left a note and maybe some photos!
Lakey, that is one rich looking ganache recipe!! YUMMY! I will definitely be saving THAT in my recipe file! Thank you SO much for sharing it!
Brenda, Welcome! I would LOVE to see the beach cake you described if you have a photo. I'm a Beach Baby and beach/luau/ocean themed cakes are my absolute favorites. Stop in whenever you like. I know many just read and never post and that is perfectly ok too!
So I do have a question for everyone? How many of you have blogs or websites? I have a weekly cake blog and was thinking that it would be great (since I have weeks when I don't have cakes to share on the blog) to be able to feature you guys and your work instead! So if you have a blog or a website please PM me here with the information if you'd like to be featured at some point on my blog?
Brenda, what a nice cake, hopefully they came to their senses and was as thrilled with the cake as I was.
It was a crazy Saturday. After my deliveries I decided to do some much needed grocery shopping with the boys. Well my twins (2-years), who didn't eat anything, went into full blown anaphlyactic shock 30 minutes into our shopping trip. Needless to say we spent the rest of the Saturday at the hospital after a frightening ambulance ride. We know they are deathly allergic to dairy, but this was just bizarre because they had nothing to eat. The doctor thinks dairy vapors may have been in the air at the store.
Back to cake...my first wedding cake. It's a dairy-free and nut-free white cake, with alternating layers of organic raspberry preserves and white chocolate frosting. The cake was 12" and 9". I really would have loved to put a third tier on, but it wasn't a local wedding and they were afraid to transport three tiers on a 2 hr drive. I hope I get more wedding cakes next year, this year I have three total. It was a nice change of pace from the kid party cakes.
Here's the animal print cake I was speaking of earlier. The mom had a shirt made for the birthday girl, so the middle of the cake was made to replicate the shirt. I added the side print and the flower because it was just so blank with the 1/2 sheet.
Here's to a great next week! I mostly have the week off, I'll be starting on some pieces for a 4-tier wedding cake and my first icing smiles cake for the last weekend in June.
tdovewings, so sorry for you and your kids, the allergy ruining your afternoon. I suffer with a different kind of allergy and I hate it.
But on the lighter side, what beautiful cakes. Great job.
