Friday Night Cake Club for 9/20/13 - Page 2

BatterUp: VERY cute Halloween cake. The Dragon cake is throwing me by the shape! LOL! Can't wait to see what it becomes!  As for the booth...I'd go for "elegant" and just make a "Halloween corner" so to speak.

 

Well, today was going well till one of my friends found my Cat logo on some pottery at a pottery faire she is at today. SIGH. As a copyrighted image they don't have the right to even make the stuff much less sell it. My friend is informing them now and asking that all pottery be removed for sale and that I will be contacting them on where to go from here. At this point they need to either turn all of it over to me or destroy it. WHY do people feel like they can do this? The one place I use my logo is on Facebook and there is a CLEAR copyright symbol on it! UGH. Hope they are at least shameful about it and this all goes smoothly. I always hand draw all of my own work just to make sure that no one can come back on me about it...why couldn't they? 

 

Ok, enough whining. Hope you guys are having a better day!

I did a Sweet Table with Cake,150  cupcakes, krispie treats dipped in white chocolate and oreo truffles and candy buffet for a 40th Anniversary event. I just love the Marvelous Mold onlays on the cake.

The moulds do look good.  When I first looked at the picture (and before I read) I was trying to work out if you had used them or freehanded.  Might have to buy myself a couple.

Rosie, Take a break, lol   Beautiful and a lot of work.

 

Batter up, I was having a hard time figuring it out as well, but after opening the link, made sense.  That is awesome and too cute.  Can't wait to see the final.

 

Thank you everyone, Yes I am stoked.  I've had a hard time with carving and faces, but since I've been taking the craftsy courses its made a difference.  Some are better than others, but I always say, if you learn just one thing, you've learned a wealth of information.

Ginny, I am super impressed at your face cake. I can't even imagine how many hours that would take

Batterup- I love the Halloween cake!   And the dragon cake, can`t wait to see it finished!

post #24 of 37

Batterup, I love your Halloween cake it is awesome. I must say I love watching how you've grown over the past months with your decorating abilities and how you keep trying and practicing. One day I will have the guts to build a structure to support a 3D cake. 

 

Rosie, your cake is lovely! Nice drop lines!

 

Here are a few things I worked on this weekend.

 

A baby shower cake for a dear friend in my mommy's club. The theme was "she's going to pop". Every time someone get's close to expectjng a child that's not a first born, we get together and throw a party called a "sprinkle". We don't really do gifts, just eat, drink, and laugh and bring diapers. This was the most unique shower theme I've done and I love it.

 

 

1st birthday's hold a special place in my heart because it's why I started decorating. A rainbow 1/4 sheet air-brushed cake and a coordinating but different 4" smash cake.

Finally, every now and then I get a customer who needs to stay away from food coloring. Here's a football themed organic cake I did using vegetable juices and chocolate for coloring.

Wow TD you have done a lot of cakes lately! Thank you so much for your kind words. I love the rainbow...

tdove.  Love the cakes.  I love the idea of "Sprinkle"  I think we get to carried away sometimes with the baby showers.  So impressed with your food color free cake. too.

 

Here are the other 2 cakes I did for this weekend.  The Monster's Inc was for a baby shower, lol.  

 

 

This one I donated to a young lady I know from church, She was raffling off a cake to raise money to send to Mexico to help people who were stranded in the recent floods.

Sorry it's already cut into, lol her pic looked better than mine as a whole cake.

Beautiful work everyone! another great Friday forum.......:-)

post #28 of 37



I actually finished it on time! ...well, kind of.   I wasn't finished 1 hour after everyone came over like last week!   LOL.    It ended up very different from a somewhat similar to my first wedding cake.   It also looked AWESOME until I lifted it from the turntable.   The fondant severely crumpled and smooshed on the sides.   I have no idea why it reacted so badly to being moved.  Of course the sides were freshly painted so I couldn't do much to smooth it, other than curse at it some...and take a good look at the front and decide it was Ok.

tdovewings- a sprinkle is an awesome idea!    Love the smash cake.   And the colour pallette of the organic cake is really lovely.

 

 

Auntginn- Baby's 1st...in utero favourite film?  Hehe, its really adorable though :)

Just decided Wicked Goodies and myself re doing a promotion to give away the black Halloween stand. That should start really soon.

 

I love mushroom cakes! Not sure why, I just like mushrooms! lol
