I'm make lace motifs out of fondant with those blue silicone mold thingies. And dusting each one with Ultra White Sparkly stuff.

I have a zillion more to do.

I'm waiting for the bell to ring!


I've got all my supplies on the counters and table. I'm cleaning and reorganizing. If the bell rings, I'll be saved see.

Ugh, I just looked back that way...it looks unmanageable(?).

When you're finished, head up my way. I've got a couple of closets of cake supplies that could use some organizing.

I'm here! I am working on yet another castle! And I have a book stack cake to make, and an Abby Cadabby cake for this weekend.

Does anyone know where I can find a coloring book page for Abby Cadabby? I have been searching all day and have turned up nothing. Any help would be great!

This is my mess!

Molly2, my daughter has a visitor from Houston area unable to return until Ike clears out.

I had enough of hurricanes between living in Savannah and living in Houston.

Hi there leahs! I delivered a 4 tier stacked wedding cake last weekend & used the SPS dividers that you recommend. They were great! The cake was perfectly level and nothing slid icon_smile.gif. Happy & more relaxed and ready for the next one. Thanks for the info.

Well all my cakes for tomorrow rescheduled due to the hurricane but someone actually called me at 6pm to place a last minute order for a bridal shower tomorrow. I happily took the order. So on top of that I'm experimenting with chocolate chip cookie recipes. I think the one I've always used is the best but I'm just exploring my options.

Its been a busy week, and this is the first time in a long time that I actually am still working on a cake this late on a friday! So of course I had to take a break and check out the cake club!

I did a little mazda 6 last night (the humidity here has been wrecking havic with my fondant lately...it was beautiful last night but this morning it is kind of saggy looking...but it will do. Anyone else getting that?)

Am finishing up yet another three tiered wedding cake, with three dots and ribbon along the border. the other cake I did this evening was a four tiered buttercream cake with fondant dusted circles that looked like the brides invitation. I also did a cake this morning that took me forever (started it last night) because I hate the design. The groom designed the cake and I have done all I can to make it look nice. My DH looked at it and I Just kept wanting to take it apart. He said to me technically its wonderful, its the design is so awful you can't really make it look pretty. I don't think I will ever do a cake again where I don't step in and just honestly tell them they have no taste!

My thoughts are all with those of you in texas who are being affected by Ike....

Happy Caking! And may the delivery gods look at you and smile!
