Sixinarow, trust me I am scared to death with the eiffel tower cake.  But since I love the challenges I've been dreaming about for weeks now.  Expecting powdered gumpaste from The Bakers Kitchen and going to try using it according to another thread, which somebody said can be made like ri and it has some give to it.

 

The other 2 cakes are no problem.  Well lets hope anyway.

But it sounds like there are going to be some really incredible cakes from you all coming up in the next few weeks, so I just might make it until then! icon_wink.gif

Lovebug2867, this sounds so good! Is it just peanut butter buttercream with some honey? Or do you use a peanut butter with honey in it? Topped with chopped honey roasted peanuts? I think I see some recipe playing in my near future!

 

Your cake is great icon_smile.gif.

Yeah It's just a peanut butter buttercream with just a tad of honey in it. I'll be drizzling it with honey as the décor because I love honey and think it should be the star lol

I got to make two girly cakes this week one for a friend but the other was my own birthday cake for yesterday.  My indulgence is that for my birthday I get to try out new techniques that I can't guarantee will work so can't do them for friends, but have fun learning them.  So this year I asked for an extruder and tried out the birdcage style of cake.  The cake was only small so it was tricky, and then I had my first ever blowout from the buttercream underneath!  I managed to press it back in, but the fondant cracked a little.  But I'm still quite pleased with it.

 

For my birthday i made a chocolate cake with raspberry buttercream filling. I only needed a little cake.This is my first time using an extruder, and my first attempt at wired sugar flowers and using petal dust. I had such fun making all the sweet peas.

 

I also tried out making wired flowers using the sweet pea cutters.  It was also my first time using petal dusts and loved the whole process of doing sugar flowers.  I definitely want to work on them some more!

 

My first attempt at wired flowers. I had a nightmare with the floral tape until I worked out how to get it to work. Still need some practise, but feel that wired flowers are going to make quite an appearance in future cakes.

 

 

I loved being able to do a grown-up, feminine cake rather than the children's cakes I've been doing lately.

Lizzie...that is just SO cute! I love really feminine cakes too. I get to do one the third week of this month for a birthday cake and then again the next week for a wedding cake. Your teeny birdcage looks perfect and I love your flowers. Wired flowers are a pain in the butt for me and I try to avoid them when I can and yours look perfect!

 

Happy Birthday!

Thank you so much Cat :-)  It is lovely to have a cake turn out just as you envisioned it.  My next cake will definitely not be feminine as it's for a young man in our church who is most definitely not in touch with his feminine side!  I'm trying to decide between chevrons or polka dots stencilled in white on a grey background.  What do you think?

I'd have to lean towards chevrons for a guy. Sounds like a fun cake to try to figure out. Guy cakes can be a challenge!
