Hi everyone! I'm headed out of town again so I'm starting up the session early tonight! Sunday is the party for our grand daughter who turned 4 on the 14th. Scheduling issues with her father made it so we had to move her party. The theme is hot pink and zebra striped Barbie. Yup...shaking my head at it too<G>. Obviously we are "working" the party too so I hope to share with you full set up photos but here is the cake!

 

The front ^^ of Barbie including gift.

The back ^^ including corset back.

 

She is taller than I thought she'd be because she is ballet Barbie and is standing on her toes! LOL! I had not accounted for that when I baked the cake so I had to think fast today while decorating her! LOL!

 

Anyways...just wanted to share Jilly's cake. As I said, I'm hoping for party pics but with driving her 200 miles there is never a guarantee that everything will still look the way it does right now.

 

I'll check in after we get there!

Very cute! My friends mom always made those and I was always envious! She will love it and so will all her friends.

I don't have any cakes this week but wish I did.

I Made This Cake For My cousin's Surprise Birthday Party. This Cake Had Very Many "1St" For Me. FIrst Time I Made A Stacked Tiered Cake (Properly), First Time I Torted A Cake, First Time I Made SMBC, First Time Using Ganache Under My Fondant, First Time Touching Gumpaste, First Time Doing Flowers,And First Time Doing Gelatin Butterflies.


My Goal Is To Open My own Bakery in Three Years. By Then My Youngest Will Be In School. I Already Have The Business Degree, Now To JustDo My Research And Get All The Legal Stuff Figured Out. And Of Course, Practice, Practice, And Practice! It's A Good Thing My Hubby And I Both Come From huge families! Sorry, I Don't Know Why My Phone Capitalizes All The Words?!?

RuthiePearl, you are so talented.  That cake is amazing.  Cat, your granddaughter is on lucky little girl!  I know my mother's favorite thing in life is being a grandmother.

I am working on a simple purple ombre rosette cake.  I got a last minute order from a good customer who is also my friend.  It has strawberry buttercream in it, so I am going to be gaining some weight this weekend  I love strawberry buttercream!

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

Thanks for the compliments..when your Nana is a cake designer you know you will be getting great cakes every birthday! LOL!

 

Ruthie! Totally adorable! I love the whole set up and adore the butterflies! I have never done half of those things so I am in awe that you did them for the first time and came up with something SO gorgeous! And your phone is hysterical! I wonder how it decides which words to capitalize and which ones to leave lowercase! LOL!

 

We are about ready to take off so I'll catch you guys in a few hours!

Today I was working on a cake for my nephew who is coming to visit tomorrow - he's 4 and loves Thomas the Train. So I decided to make him a Thomas cake and try molding RKT for the first time and work with fondant some more. I'm not totally pleased with how it turned out, but I'm sure a 4 year old won't care. Not going to post a picture though....don't want to violate any copyrights. ;)

Hello everyone!!

 

It's been awhile since I have posted, things just got a little nutso around here! I have been watching the forum every week though and everything looks great! Cat, what a lucky little girl! And Ruthie, for a lot of firsts it sure looks spectacular! I love the Ombre:) My favorite style I think. I would ombre everything if I could, my hair is even ombre, haha!

 

This week is a slower week than it has been, My husband and I just had our 3 year anniversary:) And we will be going away for 2 nights to a nice hotel in Winnipeg, MB. The big city for us country folks, lol I do have 2 weddings and a birthday cake to deliver tomorrow before we head out. 200 rustic cupcakes with a rustic cake to match. The rustic cupcakes had knifed on frosting with twine bows and some small flowers. The bows were a PITA and I will be charging way morenext time. They took a heck of a lot longer than I had expected.

 

Baby shower cupcake: These went out this morning.

 

And a wedding cake! The road I will be delivering on is like 2 hours worth of bumps and more bumps and stops and more bumps So I will just put it together tomorrow. It will look better stacked I promise:)

 

And I have a minnie mouse/zebra print cake that I am just finishing now. Will post pics after. Here is the Tiara for it though. Actually made this in 20 min! New record for me. I finally splurged and bought an extruder. Seriously, not really sure how I lived without the darn thing. Saves sooo much time!

A compromise is the art of dividing a cake in such a way that everyone believes he has the biggest piece.

Just Desserts...don't worry about posting copyright work when you are not selling the item. It is only if you sell the item that you violate copyright law.

 

Brettley! SO cute! LOVE the animal cupcakes and the wedding cake is just lovely! If you get a photo of it all stacked please do share?

 

Well, the Barbie cake made it safely to San Jose so we are pretty happy!

Going to be a late one for me...I haven`t even started assembling a cake I need to finish by tomorrow morning.   AGH!   Good thing I`m a night owl :)


Uhm, here is my red headed mermaid...reading all that TM stuff, next time I`ll change it up...or at least I personally wouldn`t recognize this character with different colour and style of hair :)

Hello All, I don't have a single cake order or even lollipop order this weekend.  But that is usual for me on this holiday.  Its my sister's birthday on Monday so I'm going to make something for her.

 

Cat.. the Barbie Cake.  Ooh, I haven't see one in years.  Brings back memories and yes when our babies have birthdays they know their cake is going to out Wow all the others.  My girls used to brag to all their friends. lol

 

RuthiePearl.. just gorgeous cake.  Congrats on all those accomplishments.

 

Brettly,  Congratulations on your anniversary, I hope your not to tired to enjoy it after all that work.  Love the tiara, cupcakes and the flowers on the cake.

 

manicgiesha, what a cute mermaid.

 

I did play around for no reason at all with a couple of things.  Was trying out a tutorial I found for Lalaloopsy here is my pic of her.  I need to put sleeves on her.

 

 

Then I ordered the Wilton mini Sports Ball pan and this is what I made with them.

And this one.

Well, I am offended and annoyed, so I am leaving. But first, I'll hang out and watch people ask why and beg me to stay. Then I'll leave. icon_wink.gif
Well, all good things must come to an end sometimes. Hey, is that a cake?
