Hi again,

 

This week I am sort of on vacation but I did have two orders. I have one cake I just finished filling and crumbcoating that I will actually decorate tomorrow and is due Sunday. I had a client meeting for a wedding cake at the end of July and 2 dozen cupcakes as well so it was just sort of a week off<G>. I am at my daughters house for the week so we have been having tons of fun too!

 

Hope everyone has had a great week!

Good Evening Cat,

 

Me too,  No cake this week.  I had a tasting today.  Which I really did not have to do.  The groom is the son of a friend from church. They came just to place their order and although it was a given that I would do the cake, the bride & groom had never tasted my cake and I decided this would be a good time for them.

 

Have a few orders of cupcakes for the 4th and after that get ready for my big Eiffel Tower cake project.

 

I'm having problems with my printer tonite so I'm glad I don't have a cake on top of this.  It is printing with white line across the paper.  This is my printer for frosting sheets and I have 2 customers waiting for their sheets.  yikes, what am I doing on the cputer?  icon_cry.gif

Ginn, I HATE printers..truly I think they have it "out" for me! Is it possible that a nozzle is jammed? Just a thought.

 

I have nothing for the 4th that I don't choose to do myself<G>. I am booked every week past that now in July but free this upcoming week. 

 

We are having a nasty heatwave in California right now. I'm over in the Bay Area and it was mid-90's today...that is really hot for here. It was 108 in Sacramento today where my husband is so it's truly nasty hot here. I don't go home till Monday or Tuesday so I'm praying the 4th will be cool enough to be outside to watch the fireworks at our local fair grounds. Otherwise it will be a week of hiding in the A/C!

No.. I fixed it.  I've been pulling my hair out for about 3 weeks with this printer.  Funny thing it was a paper jammed all the way in the back.

 

Fixed!

 

Yes Cat, I'm here in L.A. and its been scorchers for 2 days now.  We've been in the high 80's los 90's I've done my baking in the middle of the nite.  Like at 3am.  My poor daughter and grandkids live in one of the suburbs and its always about 10 degrees hotter than where I am.  Lucky for them they have a pool. :)   I will be doing just like you. under the a/c.

 

Wonder if anybody is going to cake camp in Vegas?

Hello im just a beginner but today I made theis captain America cake for my brothers birthday. Its my first tier cake. Its yellow on the bottom and chocolate cake on top with a buttercream frosting I used homemade white modeling chocolate instead of fondant to cover the cake. Its not the best but the more practice I get I will get better. icon_smile.gif wha t do you think?

I think that it's an awesome first project for a stacked cake! I bet your brother was simply thrilled! And, yes, I think you will just keep getting better and better! Just keep on working and challenging yourself. I've been doing this for 5 years now and I find that those cakes where I was able to try something new and that I had to work just that much harder on are the ones that I am the proudest of.

I'm up!! This is my first post, so Hi from Pleasant View, and CAT thanks for having this lil get together. I just sort of blew into the Cake World pretty unintentionally on St. Patty's Day 2013 (Well, I am Irish-American). Miss-bakes-alot That looks amazing and your Captain America is so detailed and awesomely cute sitting on the cake! GREAT JOB!! I took my supplies 500 miles to Panama City Beach, and made this one in TOTAL humidity and 80-90 degree weather, windows open, no air conditioning, to test my skills in different conditions. It kept melting and I had to refreeze in between fondant layering. This was my third cake ever, made in honor of my son, LCpl Gabe Raney, who gave his life fighting terrorism in 2010, and who loved red legos and cake. Glad to meet y'all~Penny AKA Gold Star Mom

Slow week for me only did one cake but it turned out well. I did a Papa Smurf cake based off a cake I saw here just a slightly different design. Found a coloring page online printed it to size and trimmed the cake to shape. This was for a coworkers of my fiancé birthday I was told all the guys loved it and it got my name out around there have a possible birthday order from one of them this fall.

I will be working on my fiancés cake this week. His birthday is the 5th and I want to do a zombie cake. I also need to start on my nephews Red Sox cake get the chocolate stuff made up in advance and royal icing decorations done.  The bottom tier of his cake the 12" round is going to be a dummy cake as we don't need that much cake so just waiting on it to arrive so I can cover it and the cake board with fondant ahead of time. 

 

I also plan on doing baseball cake pops, cookies and chocolate covered strawberries for my nephew.  I also need to make some cake pops to send to my sister in Texas as a sample. She wants me to make super hero pops for her youngest birthday this fall but as she's never had them doesn't know if they'll like them.  Since she's my sister I'll send her the samples.

Sorry I missed you all last night. I couldn't take a break. I've being working on two cakes that where both a serious challenge. I'll post an update later today with pictures. My first 4-tier wedding cake and a cake for Icing Smiles. Still working this morning, both with early deliveries, then I can breathe.

I've been MIA but now I'm back. I took a short break due to feeling sick all the time and being very tired (1st trimester sucks!). Anyways, I made this Pokemon cake for my best friend, whose son is having his 7th birthday party today. This is my first attempt at airbrushing. It's chocolate cake with creme brulee buttercream filling.
