Cazza, I love your birthday cake. The magnolia is really beautiful.

TDove, that is The nicest sheet cake I have ever seen. Awesome flat top & sharp corners! The story picked my heart.

Boyka, I wann lick my screen!

Six, love the fun of the moustache cake! And that sweet lil cake is precious.

Marian, awesome idea of how to make the pineapple. Very popular here in charleston.

I wanted to scream last night while finishing this cake. Glad I priced it the way I did, but next time will be more!

So of you may recall me asking I anyone knew how to make seersucker. I figured it out! Labor InTenseiVe!

I am very proud of the final result.

Ahh Delicuousss how did you do all this lines so even?!?!
Thanks for the good words too.
Cat...on the second cake those are roasted almonds, it's one of my favorite cakes ever... the cake part is only egg whites, sugar, spoon of flower and walnuts.

I used an extruder to roll out each line. I lined them on a piece of thin plastic making them nice & straight. I then used a real piece o seersucker material & my fondant smoother.

Did I mention labor inTensive! 5 hours of lines.

Cazza, how did I miss that Happy Birthday!

 

DeliciousDesserts, absolutely, positively stunning! Five hours, Whoa! My eyes would be crossed forever.

 

OT, what a gorgeous cake.

 

I don't understand the mustache thing either, but I love your cakes sixinarow.

 

The flat tops are new for me since I got my Agbay. I use it on everything, I love, love, love Agbay! So easy and I don't even need to chill my cakes before torting. It saves me a lot of time, strike that! It gives me even more incentive to delay what I know I need to do. I use to bake all my cakes a day early so they can chill before leveling and torting, now I do way more in one day than I should. But I still love the Agbay.

 

Here's the other cake I did. Another 1/3 sheet cake inspired by the party invitations.

 

Next week will be hard, I am just going to try so hard not to procrastinate. I need to make a Princess Leia out of fondant. There is also another cake that requires figure sculpting. I haven't done it in a couple of years. I took classes a while back, but whenever I quote a price they decide to go 2D or plastic, so I haven't done much outside of the class and homework for the class. I hope I remember how to do this. wish me luck!

I was asked to make something for a friend, like I have never done before.  When she sent me a picture from Pintrest, I didn't even know what it was she was wanting me to make.  haha  This is a Cthulhu.

 

I covered the cake in MMF and made the tentacles with MMF and Tylose added.  I used the SPS for the first time and I loved it.  I did have a problem with my bottom layer not being tall enough, so I had a large gap. I learned from that experience and plan to change things to make my next cake more successful with the SPS system.

 

This is my Cthulhu cake. The cake is covered in MMF. The tentacles are MMF with Tylose powder added.

 

 

This is my Cthulhu cake. The bottom layer is 9" and the top layer is 6". They are covered in MMF. The tentacles are MMF with Tylose powder added. I used the SPS system for the first time. My top border is so large because I had a gap to fill. I learned from that and I am excited about using the SPS system on another cake later this month.

Only one cake this week for my nephews birthday party. My sister helped with this so some of the piping is a bit light. She's still learning lol.

*

 

We also did baseball cookies and cake pops and we had my nieces do chocolate dipped pretzels so they could help out.

*

The girls (8 and 11) helped out with making the MMF and coloring it too. Got some great pictures of my youngest niece covered in powdered sugar lol.

It's wonderful to see everyone's cakes  but Delicious, especially, your cake is stunning.

DD.  It is just awesome.

 

Sadly I didn't take a pic of the cake.  I had to deliver it and could not set it up.  And I don't think I would have liked it anyway.  It turned out little bit to gawky for my taste.  The coloring was off - Originally the customer brought me a sample of fabric from the young ladies dress.  Days later she sends me a pic of another dress.  they changed their mind and changed the dress.  The coloring looked similar in color but when I arrived, the young lady was dressed and the color was way.... off.

Sigh.  

 

The sizes of the cake didn't fit right.  Because of the design I should have made deeper tiers.

I think I'm overbooking and getting too tired out by the time I'm getting close to finishing a cake.  Been looking for help but not finding any.  Sigh!!

Dark chocolate, that is just awesome! Love those tentacles.

Lovebug, very kewl! I'm a braves fan, but otherwise that cake is outta the park!

Auntginn, I've had cakes that I just didn't like. They don't make the website. I really hate wen that happens. Now, I'm sure you're being far more critical than any of us would be.

When I delivered that tux cake, I saw the groomsmen & my heart sank. The color was off & the toe was wrong. It matched the photo but not them. So what?! They love it.

I bet those bridesmaids are glad they don't match the cake! Who wants to be compared to the gorgeous cake all night?!

Thank you, DD.  One of the teenage boys from the party told me today, he wouldn't eat a tentacle because it looked to real. haha  It was MMF, so it was edible.

 

Your cake is awesome!  The skill and expertise you have is amazing.
