Opening up another session of the FNCC! Everyone is welcome to come chat about their week, show photos of their work, ask for help if needed or help out if you can! Hope to see lots of photos!
Still off on break. I don't have a client cake till the 12th so I've plenty of time on my hands. This week I made Strawberry Shortcakes with lemon cake, fresh strawberries and freshly whipped cream. It was a hit with our little dinner party crowd. I'm doing mini cakes for my blog and wanted to show what you can do with small rounds of cake. My family is ever so happy to eat the fruits of my labor! LOL! Anyways, here's the photo I took:
And, yes, it was totally yummy! LOL!
Hope to see lots of photos this week! I'm having a bit of cake withdrawl since I'm not really working right now. After such a busy summer it's hard to just suddenly have nothing going on!
I made a sandwich this week with help from AZ. It was hubbies birthday and he is a salad sandwich freak. They would probably be his favorite thing in the world to eat. It was probably the quickest and easiest cake I have ever made but looks great anyway. He laughed and said he hadn't thought I was making him a cake. When I replied that I had told him I was, he said that I usually puddle all week when I make a cake and as I hadn't done anything he presumed that I couldn't be bothered. He took it back to work after lunch and said they all took photos of it and then sms d them to friends, claiming that they had made it! I should add in here that most of them probably could not even cook a cake.
The 'Rye' bread banana cake was from Rose Levy Berambaum's Cake Bible, with about a cup of chopped walnuts added and was absolutely delicious.
Cat, I'm like you. I didn't have a cake order all week and don't know what to do with myself. I am still working on my cake dummies tho so hope to be finished this week. I do have one tiny order of 4 dz cake pops for the morning and talk about procrastination, I haven't even started lol.
Cassie I just love..... your cake. Its so realistic.
Morgan, I'm so sorry for your loss. My condolences to you and your family. but the cake is very nice. Congratulations on working with the fondant.

this week at my wilton cake decorating class we made pumpkins I make pumpkin bread with pumpkin buttercream and fondant.
Love all of the cakes I woke up to this morning!
Morgan, love the cake...do you use a mold for the pearls or are those all handrolled? I love that it's not all one color too! So sorry to hear about your Aunt. Sometimes just being with family to say goodbye and talk about the person's life is a blessing in itself, sad, but a blessing.
Miss, the pumpkin cake sounds SO yummy. I'm a pumpkin freak (November is known as Pumpkin Month in our house) so that one sounds like it's right up my alley!LOL!
Reen, wow, birthday cake AND shower cake for the same cousin? She's one spoiled girl! LOL! The diaper bag looks just wonderful.
Ana, I think your rose and butterfly cake is just wonderful. I know that photography hides what you see in person but it looks fairly perfect to me. But I also know that we are SO hard on ourselves seeing every little imperfection and wanting it to be perfect. Rest assured that, to the rest of us, it does look perfect!
