Hi everyone! This past week has been a whirlwind. With two weddings just a few days apart we are just exhausted! Here is a photo of the cake table of this past one:

Hey I get to post my birthday cake again.  This is my cake for this week.  I airbrushed in in greens and browns with the intention of putting bas relief flowers on the sides but then ran out of steam.  I'm very good at ending up with cakes that look nothing like the original intention.  I really did like it though.

Cat, I think your cake is overwhelmed by the decorations surrounding it.  Such a shame.

Cat, very nice! I can't wait to see the others.

 

Cazza, that is really pretty and the base you used for the photo is just perfect.

 

It is a light week for me. Two sheet cakes, one a SpongeBob themed and the other for a swimming party.  I started not to take the Spongebob order because the customer wanted an exact replica of a Decopac/grocery store cake.  She said her daughter wanted a normal looking grocery store cake, and I really wasn't enthusiastic about airbrushing a cake and putting plastic toppers on but something told me to do it. I had a Decopac account, I needed a few other things, so I ordered the kit.  I know sometimes kids with food allergies just want to be normal but this was an extra special case. As it turns out the 8-year old was celebrating a truly beautiful event, a second chance at life.  Her family calls it her "re-birthday" celebration to mark the day she got a heart transplant. Boy am I glad I went ahead and took the order, I would have felt so bad if I didn't.

 

I'll post the swimming pool cake tomorrow when it's complete.

Hello all, I am super busy this week.  I have my first ever 5 tierred cake.  for a quinceanera.  And while the design is nothing original its time consuming. Also my niece is here from Jersey and we are having a big family get together.  We haven't seen her in over 12 years so the whole family is excited to say the least. Guess who's doing the cooking.  lol  My fave thing to do.  

 

Last week was busy as well.  And it gets busier, especially since I started this group thing on fb.  Just today I got 2 more orders off the group.  Loving it.  I'm now looking for another part-timer to help out.

 

Cazza, Happy Birthday.  you did a great job on that cake.  I just love it, flower and color

Cat, Very nice wedding cake.  Feel better. Wish I could go to bed

tdovewings, nice sponge bob.   I haven't done one in ever so long.

 

Back to the drawing board my friends.  Will post a pic tomorrow.

Cat, your cake is adorable! Cazza, love, love, love your cake!

I made this cake as a last minute favor for a friend. She's having her son's christening today and she needed a cake to serve 15-20 people done in blue buttercream. This is my first ruffle cake. Overall, it was a fun cake to do!

That brings tears to my eyes!!! You did a great job on it!

 

I love seeing all the cakes. I had a pretty light week, a little mustache smash cake for a first bday photo shoot and a bridal shower cake. 

Little 4" smash cake. This tiny cake just makes me smile!Bridal shower cake that mimics a wedding dress and bouquet. Gumpaste roses and fondant ruffles.

When I see them side-by-side like that ^^^ it looks like a bride and groom! HAHA!!

Good morning everyone! I do feel a bit better...I think it's all allergies which suck but,well, they are not fatal! LOL!

 

Cazza...love your cake and I think it's better that it didn't end up being busier than it is. It's lovely. Hope you have a very happy birthday.

 

Ginn...can't wait to see pics. The wonderful thing about coming in this morning was seeing the photos! Good luck with the 5 tier..nerve wracking but impressive to look at!!

 

 

Boyka...LOVE the yin yang cake! Too cool!!! And I'm dying to know what the second one was trimmed with...are those almonds?...looks divine!

 

OTcakes...that little cake is just so cute! Frilly! 

 

Sixinarow...love the Bridal shower cake. I must admit I don't really "get" the whole mustache craze but I like how you kept it simple. 

 

Marian...what was the pineapple made out of? Is that just frosting? Totally fun cake...bet she loved it. And the speaking of fun...that little tiger cake is a hoot!

 

I am off this week with the exception of one small wedding cake. The couple is getting married now before the Groom deploys for a year and then doing the big wedding/reception when he comes home. He's going to the back lines so while they are worried enough to get married before he leaves they are going ahead with the big wedding plans for next year too. I am, happily, getting both cakes. But this one is only a one tier. Sometimes, for wedding cakes, that can be a challenge. I'm hoping this one turns out "bridal" enough. It has a mass of little white flowers with pearl centers (as if the last two cakes I did didn't have enough pearls<G>) and a little bling from a broach that belongs to her grandmother so I'm hoping it turns out well. I'll share with all of you Friday!

Cat the pineapple was made using the mini wonder mold pan. I made pineapple cake and cut one in half. Also I added pineapple juice to buttercream frosting so the whole cake tasted like pineapple and she was thrilled with the cake. Glad your feeling better. And thanks for starting this thread I look forward to it every Friday. icon_smile.gif
