I posted this over in the business forum but haven't gotten any response, so I thought I would post it here. Last week I got my first set of cake dummies in the mail and put together a couple of quick designs to put in my wedding portfolio (since I never did one before and my home bakery is opening next month). I am currently working on one of Duff's designs, but does anyone else have any pictures of some quick/simple, yet different designs I can throw together? I am hoping to have about a dozen designs before the end of Feb.
id skip through the gallery here, theres lots of good simple designs. think dots, stripes and flowers, and you are away! and think colours too, i think you want one really wild one to show you can do any style.
Might have been about 2-3 years ago but I remember someone posting a lot of wedding photo's at once. Like yourself they were doing up a port-folio and I remember thinking wow that was a good idea.
The basically iced the dummies plain at first and made lots of different types/colours of flowers. Changed the ribbons and Flowers and had about 10 cakes from just doing that. Then they put in a simple piped design on the dummies and went through the process again. Another 10 cakes.
Then they made the design a bit more intricate and used the flowers and ribbons again. 30 cakes, only 1 set of dummies, ribbons and flowers.
Thanks Ladies... I have been flipping through the galleries... there is just SOO much out there!! I was hoping someone had either just done a simple design and was willing to share or had just put together a quick protfolio themselves. If I didn't have a toddler and a part-time job, I would be making a new cake every day! I definately have several more ideas of what I would like to try... just need to find the time to do them... still open to suggestions though!! Everyone here is so creative!
