It tastes so good :) I actually have some caramel sauce left over in the fridge that just HAPPENS to have a spoon in it! And yes, I am sneaking a spoonful every chance I get

Ginn, I love the Minnion cakes...I won't make my first one till December. My mom is crazy for those little yellow things so that's the theme of her birthday cake this year. Can't wait to see how yours turns out!

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!

Cat I think mine is going out as we speak! I just pain medication its that bad, and its not working. I can't believe I thought 200 cupcakes would be easier than a cake. Someone hold me, lol.

Last Sunday was Father's Day here in Australia so here's the cake I made for my husband and father-in-law. It's only the second cake I've done in fondant ... it has some issues, but I'm pretty happy with it overall  :)

MustangMollie, What a great cake, I don't know what issues you had, from my view everything looks great.

Hi guys, some great cakes.  No cakes for me this week and maybe not for a while.  I put on sooooo much weight whilst away last week (and during the July holiday) that I am going to have to do something about it.  Maybe I will practise my flowers for a couple of months.

SIx...I LOVE your cakes. I was looking at your flower  one this morning and thinking "I want to make that!" I need to become an apprentice! The Dad and minion cakes are super cute... I could see the picture of the Barbie cake but not the second 2...

 

My cupcake and Mask order got cancelled. I hate when people use the family emergency line when I suspect it is more along the lines of "Holy crap! I just agreed to pay $180 for CUPCAKES?!?!?" lol I don't mind though. Gives me more time to work on cake stands without any pressure. Although I will miss the money. And no I did not get a deposit! Please don't yell at me! lol

 

I am doing a dummy cake. It is going to be 2 tier. It will have a pearlescent, silver and gold peacock on top. The top tier has white sugar crystals to look like snow. Not sure yet what to do with the bottom tier. I am thinking of painting it silver with gold accents...or gold with silver accents? Oh and I bought some flowers and painted them with pearl luster dust to put on each tier. Just can't remember what they are called? lol The tail will cascade down the side. Will post pictures of what I have accomplished in a bit.

 

Happy caking!

Thanks everyone! I love trying new things, so this week's cakes were really fun (especially since I had full creative control!!)

Coke- I love your Barbie cake, I bet your grandaughter loved creating it with you - and think of the memories you made together!!

MustangMollie - I love your name!! :) My first car was an old '65 Mustang, so I'm a little partial to those! Your father's day cake is great, the logo is so cool!

Auntginn- I love your Minion cake - he's so stinkin' cute with his little tongue! :)

 

Here's my last one for the weekend - a small client birthday cake, but it was fun doing the stitching and the logo, not super happy with the board, but it's finished and a little too late to change it now!

Our cake was due last night. And we didn't realize it until 11 p.m. Thursday night!! We kept checking our job ticket for other details. It had the correct date, we just had it set in our minds that weddings are on Saturdays. So we were like, "yeah, Saturday, September 6, 2013, got it." Luckily, all the cakes were baked and cooling. Had to make a midnight trip to the grocery store for icing supplies. Who buys 20lbs of powdered sugar at midnight? We do! We had a four tier wedding cake and a scuba diver themed groom's cake. With only the cakes baked at 11 p.m. we had less than 24 hours to get everything done. After a loonnng night, a short nap and an even shorter day, we delivered not on time, but an hour early! Needless to day, Friday night was spent sleeping. :grin:

And here are the results!

 

AppleMark

The first three tiers were Sour Cream White cake. The top had Chocolate Buttercream filling, the next two tiers had Orange Cream filling. The bottom tier was Peanut Butter Cup cake with Chocolate Ganache filling. Chocolate Buttercream icing on the outside with shells provided by the bride and groom. Real ribbon was a replacement for fondant bands and probably gave us that extra hour.

Fresh Strawberry cake with Fresh Strawberry filling and Vanilla Buttercream icing. Fondant/Gumpaste decorations. The poor octopus had to put up a fight when I put it in the box. The darn lid wouldn't stay closed so I kept forcing it until it finally stayed closed. When we got there I figured out why it wouldn't stay closed. So the octopus had a couple of war wounds. The scuba diver was falling off and because I kept smashing it down, the strawberry filling was coming out the bottom. It's a good thing we had that extra hour. I was able to fix everything but the poor octopus. The cake started out with smooth sides, but turned out okay with the wavy finish.

 

Whew! Needless to say we are reviewing everything and putting up job boards / calendars so hopefully this wont happen again. It worked out this time, but we can't afford to take chances.

 

Next week: A tasting on Friday morning and two weddings on Saturday. I double checked that.
