Hi everyone,

 

No cakes this week. It was a good thing too since I threw out my back on Tuesday and couldn't have made a cake if my career depended on it! LOL! But am doing just fine now. Hope to see lots of photos of your work this week!

Oh no Cat! :( Back pain is the worst, I hope you are feeling better, sounds like you need a warm bath and a cool drink!!

I had a busy week. I made my first display dummy for an upcoming bridal show ( a LOT of pearls and ruffles), a birthday cake for my mil and another small baseball birthday cake that I'm still working on. I'll post pics of it tomorrow, but here are my first 2.

Lots (and lots and lots) of fondant pearls and ruffles.

Geometric pink fondant ruffles (inspired by Jessicakes of course!!), extruded fondant scrolls and flowers.

    My grandaughter phoned  me to request a Barbie Doll cake with a white wedding dress for her 6th birthday,

she also asked that I bring my pens, stamps and inks (I knew what she has planning).

I of course complied!  At first she allowed her older siblings to help, but soon she took control! LOL

Six! Those are both just drop dead gorgeous! I look at those ruffles and think "ooooohhhhhhh nooooooo" LOL! They are amazing!

 

 

Coke...none of your photos show. Please do try to post again? I did a Barbie cake for the first time in 20 years just last week so I'm dying to see your photos!

Six, I didn't know you made that cake! I saw it earlier this week (pearl cake) and just stared at it for 15 minutes it so beautiful. The ruffles and pearls are just perfect.

 

A light week for me, a dinosaur themed cake and 4 dozen plain cupcakes. Much needed break as I am re-organizing my cake stuff yet again, and re-launching my website, re-designing my logo, and changing my business structure. Lots of meetings with accountants, lawyers, graphic designers and the such. 

 

Cat, I'm glad your back is better! 

 

I'll post pictures tomorrow after delivery.

 

Good night!

urgh, another late friday for me.  I still haven't' decided on the design of my cake- AHHHH!    At least this one isn't due until Monday afternoon.  I have time but I want to start on something for it...I haven't' even settled on a cake recipe.   All I know is that I'm involving graphic tribal art, and blackberry frosting.

Coke- they are adorable!   I'm so in love with doodle cakes.  I really need to make one for my kids one of these days.

Six- Those are BEAUTIFUL!  

 

 

Cat- sorry about your back!  Hope you are getting lots of rest.

 

 

 

 

Ok, need to get off the computer and back to sketching.  I will make this cake...I will not chicken out and just make cupcakes like I have the last three times for my aunt.

Cat - I hope your back gets better soon xxx

Six - amazing work, I am totally in love with those pearls and ruffles!

Coke - Such an adorable idea, I love her artwork on her cake. 

 

Well, I have no photos this week. I haven't exactly been making finished cakes, but I have been working on my recipes and am totally happy I've found a chocolate cake I love, have perfected SMBC and made caramel SMBC (yum!), and am currently working on a caramel apple cake that I can do as cupcakes but can also adapt as a large cake flavour. 

 

Just cruising in the business planning stages by perfecting my recipes and honing my skills :)

Good Evening everyone, I'm being a procrastinator tonight.  I have 1 cake for the weekend and I guess it will be pretty much all night because I'm just getting started really.  Cakes are baked and starting to assemble the layers and tiers.  A 10" round cake with a 6" minion cake popping out.  Its actually my 1st minion cake.

 

I had an order of 100 cake pops yesterday and a cake pop class tomorrow afternoon.  Other than that pretty slow for me as well.  Working on Roses for some dummy cakes.  I'm going to have a small photo shoot within the next month to upgrade my website.

 

Six, I am so.. impressed, envious actually. 

 

Coke, what a beautiiful Barbie doll cake.  If I did that around here, I think the little girls would fight over her and she'd be destroyed. rofl..

 

I'll check back later and take a peak at what everyone else is doing.
