Hi everyone!  Starting a bit early tonight because I have to go deliver this cake to San Jose. It is double staked into the cake drum but I'm still kinda freaked out. The birthday guy owns a propane franchise, thus the propane tank<G> 

Next up is a small purse cake and then a Barbie doll cake. OH MAN, I just realized that when I was at the store I forgot to buy the Barbie! Oh well, I have time. Hope everyone has had a good week and that I get to see lots of cake photos whenever I can check back in here tonight!

I am baking a cake tonight to be frozen and decorated later this month.  This will be my biggest cake ever, 3-tier to feed 150 people!

Hi everyone! On the road to a beach vacation with all three kiddos (still awake, 9 PM Eastern time btw). At least the baby finally stopped crying. This is a art pallete birthday cake for an 11 year old girl, vanilla cake filled with homemade dulce de leche and vanilla buttercream. She seemed to like it. Looking forward to seeing all the amazing cakes--while driving for the next 3 plus hours icon_wink.gif

Hey there Friday nighters!! I'm working on a 3D upright spiderman cake (the head and shoulders or bust if you will :). I've been wanting to do this cake for the longest and I finally have a client that went crazy when she saw a picture of it. She even added a creative spin - she'd like good spiderman on one half and bad spiderman, Venom, on the other half. I'm not excited about wearing my hands out with the clay extruder to do the webs, but I have a feeling this is gonna be an awesome cake! At least I'm praying it will! :)

Norasmom, is this a wedding cake? I'd love to bake far ahead but no freezer space! LOL! Can't wait to see the finished product!

 

Cakeddc, Thanx! I really hope he loves it. I sure do love your art cake. I've been dying to do one...with a paint palette I mean. I really like your paint! Have fun at the beach! I'll be blessed to be going there tomorrow for a short bit myself<G>

 

therealmrsriley, that sounds SOOOOO cool! But I, too, feel for your hands! Please please please post a photo when you are done?

 

sixinarow...oooooo...that cake looks SO pretty! I love how you did the negatives and divided it by the ribbon. SO elegant!

Cat, I love that cake! I did a tall one like that and it traveled fine, I'm sure yours will too.

And Cake, I love the way you put big 3d globs of paint on the pallet. Very creative!

 

I usually don't share, but it was a slow week and I actually have time. I just finished this little ballerina cake.

No, it's not for a wedding, I am too gun shy to do a wedding!  A friend whose father owns nursing homes is having a 40th anniversary celebration for one of his nursing homes.  I am decorating it with a sculpture that looks like the fountain they have in the courtyard.  So far so good!

I love the propane tank cake!!

Oh so tired. It's been a long week, and I'm not feeling to hot. Trying to press through this as much as I can tonight. So far this week I've done 2 cupcake orders, 2 cake orders, and I'm working on two 1/2 sheet cakes tonight. It's pretty much been 1-2 orders per day this week. I just ran out of frosting so I'm debating on whether or not it's time to go to bed and regroup in the morning or pull it together tonight. The one I have left is a Dora and Diego cake, thankfully it's a decopac cake. Recently I've had customers that just want a cake they can find in a grocery store (style wise), so much to my surprise I've been doing a lot of cakes that I don't really have to think about, just execute. It's kind of a weird twist to all this. I'm still not sure how I feel about this. On the otherhand, it has allowed me to take more orders per week because they don't take as much time.

I went to the State Show on Monday , I had an A.G.M. for our cake club Monday night , ( I was re elected Branch Secretary ) . Tuesday I took some of our older members from the club out for Morning tea, Wednesday I did a Peony class ( Lucky I can just about do that one with my eyes closed these days. ) I baked two passionfruit mudcakes and two strawberry mudcakes. 

Thurs I ganached , Fri I decorated. Saturday morning was family visit time  and then I delivered the  Two tier , red and black , 1920's flapper inspired cake . Photos to follow. 

 

I really need to wash tomorrow and clean my house before my cleaning lady comes on Monday. 

 

I hope everyone has a great weekend.

I'll be baking tomorrow. Nothing major. I'm finally able to put weight on my ankle after two surgeries. So my fiance is getting a single serving cake. Milk chocolate with my 'light' vanilla buttercream, cherries on top with chocolate shavings. His mom is getting one as well, she just had knee surgery. Cakes for everyone!!!
