Cat, that is quite a cake! For something like that do you support it the same way you do a tiered cake? I'm amazed at how nice it is, I can't imagine covering something so large in fondant.
Howsweet, what a sweet ballerina cake. The ballerina looks so thin. How do you balance her on the cake?
I've finally had adequate pain killers, a bit of sleep, a margarita, and a good meal in me. I usually take a week off, everyone month but I failed to block off a week and keeping scheduling cakes. It took me forever to finish my last two cakes of the week. I'm so much more efficient when I'm well rested.
Here's a few of the cakes I worked on this week.
A 10" vegan, ombre rose cake, for a small wedding. Almond cake, raspberry preserves and white chocolate fillings. This happens to be my favorite flavor that I make. I often times think back to the Bill Cosby episode where he cut a piece out of the middle of the cake, stuffed it with paper towels and iced it so his wife wouldn't find out. Every time I make this flavor combo I think really hard about it. LOL! The photographer sent me a picture, it makes the cake look so much better. When I took the picture you couldn't even see the ombre effect.
Here's my Dora decopac cake I gave up on last night because I ran out of frosting. Once I got some sleep, it was actually kinda fun to do and I got to use the airbrush that I feel like was a waste of $$$ because I rarely use it.
I was airbrush happy this week. A primary color balloon cake. Looking at this, I probably should have did the clouds and sky on the whole cake or at least some grass or something at the bottom.
I did a few others this week, mostly undecorated.
Time do some templates for next week. Ballerina cupcakes and a turquoise, purple, and black dessert buffet.
I'm vowing not to take any last minute orders this week and the next free weekend I have, I'm taking off.
