Well it is know Friday morning and I have to say TGIF...and the week is over!
What a week!..It started off good...even for a Monday...I had three weddig cakes to and two birthday cakes to get out from Friday - Saturday.
So I started my prep work on Monday night...icing..coloured my fondant..and made my gum paste roses..etc.
Tuesday night...finish my roses...WOW they look nice (gave myself a little pat on the back)
Wed--time to start backing all my cakes (and I am a scratch baker)...I start baking around 6 pm and clean up around 11 pm. Flip out all my cakes and what do I discover!!!!!!! My oven element (bottom) burned out! So here I was with a bunch of raw cakes...(yes I did test them..and the toothpick came out clean)
Now lucky me...I have two ovens..but the back up oven is too small to cook more then one cake at a time...so at 6 AM thursday monring I put in my last cake to bake. Jumped into the shower cause now I have to get ready for my "real job"...half dead I arrive at the office.
I get home last night and time to decorate...once again up until 5 AM today to finish them all off ...are we there yet?
So tonight...I am treating myself to the SPA...and a big box of chocolates....oh yeah...I forgot...I have to may cake pops!
Have a great weekend everyone...I am going to gry and get to sleep!
I gotta say, you've earned it! I don't know how you managed that marathon! My hat is off to you.
I need to sleep just after reading that. You have to be tired.
Good grief...and you work too? How on earth did you do that all?
OMG! I have a real job as well 5 days a week. So I feel your pain. But 3 wedding cakes and a few others. Oh my!! I have pumped out 3 at the most, but if I have a wedding cake, that's all I do.
Wow, hats off to you for getting all this done. You will need that spa and a week of sleep too.
Oh my gosh. I am tired for you. That is alot of cakes. Get some well deserved rest.
WOW, I am surprised you even had one minute to get some sleep while taking all of that on. I hope that you had a wonderful night at the spa, you totally deserve it!
You must be a very high energy person!
Congratulations on a week well done.
Ouch! My jaw hurts from hitting the floor as I read of your escapades!! When you relax at that spa, take my best friend, Robert Mondavi, with you! You've earned it!
Ok so I know your exhausted but I'm jealous...lol I've been benched from caking since the beginning of Nov. I blew out my knee and had to have surgery. so the first week I was ok, well this is nice. I work full time and can't even do that so yeah I got a break. But now I had a complication and am now benched til at least New Years Eve. I have one wedding cake this next weekend and I'm really looking forward to sitting on my butt but being able to get it done (luckily I've got an awesome boyfriend who is going to help) but shoot I want to work on cakes!!!!!
Enjoy your spa visit and take it easy for a day or so...lol
My gosh, be proud. I had three cakes this week, and i dont even sell them, and I was stressed. Your a cake Wonder Woman.
