AWow CakeSprite that's a brilliant mermaid! Off to have a nose at the rest of your site now! ;)
ANatt - I dithered about getting them for ages, but def. worth it IMO!
I've not done much carving, Infact I think just one so far - a dog shaped cake lol! I'm sure it's down to practise but I just haven't had much requirement to try it out yet.
I on the other hand got thrown pretty much in the deep end when after I'd been decorating for a year a friend of mine asked for Optimus Primes head for their wedding.... I learnt to carve different shapes quickly after that!
Aww Natt- I'm dead jealous... I've made thousands of cakes, hundreds of wedding ones - Not one Optimus Prime. Not a single one
My husband loves transformers but doesn't eat cake, so I never make him one.
Maybe I should make one for myself.
I am thinking about treating myself to a 'Game of thrones' cake in a few weeks to celebrate the new series. I'm SO sad.
Just finished my next tutorial... Teddies.
ABarbara, I love all your cakes!!:) I have to make some daffodils, roses and hydrangeas this week but all non wired!!:(
Natt love your painted cake!! :-)I haven't tried painting on the cake yet. That is on my to do list! And your carved cake is brilliant!! I've done a few, but don't get many, may be because I charge a lot for carved cakes. :oops:
Mel your cake is fabulous too!!! Brush embroidery is another thing on my to do list!! Maybe I'll try this one for my birthday!!!:D
ANatt, love it soooo neat.
Mel, what can I say, I'm Welsh, so its bound to be a fab cake.
Cake sprite, cute mermaids too.
Bashini, I want to-do brush embroidery haven't yet but probably will soon no doubt. I've only ever made one wedding cake, but I have 2 to make in the next year, will show you that cake as it my first one, tell me what you think.[IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3209021/width/200/height/400[/IMG]
AWow I don't come on here for a few days and have 5 pages of messages to catch up on! Damn real life getting in the way of my caking!
Anyway I love all of the pics everyone has put on. Maisie your daughters cake is great that is such a good idea! I also love the Tom and Jerry cake and the garden cake (sorry I've already forgotten who posted them).
I've just finished a ribbon cake for a 'gender reveal' party. I know it's only a simple design but it's the first one I've done like this so I'm quite pleased with it. The cake inside is coloured so that when it's cut everyone will see what *** the baby is going to be. I think it's quite a good idea - any excuse for cake!
My next task is to get on with this wine bottle in a crate cake - I've made the bottle just hope it's survive now!
AOoh it appears you can't write the 3 letter word that starts in s and ends in x! But I'm sure you all know what I mean...
ABarbara, your cake is gorgeous. Must have taken long time to make all those flowers.
Sugarluva, it's beautiful!!! :D
ALove that bow Sugaluva! How did you form the twirly bits?
ABlimey, I had an early night last night and missed loads! Love your rugby cake Mel! Also love how you've taken the photo of the best side. (The Welsh flag!) my boys would go mad for that cake! Love your painting natt, that's something I would never do! Can't draw, can't paint and my handwriting looks like a spider's dipped his legs in ink and scuttled across the paper! I can't believe that's your first wedding cake nanny, it's really good! I'm in awe of you all, I really am! Cake-sprite- I found loads of gluten free recipes that called for banana but it had to be banana free as well! It had to be gluten free, nut free, banana free, artificial flavour free, chocolate free and a few other obscure things free! It was a nightmare!
I love the wedding cake Nannycook - it is absolutely beautiful. What cutter did you use for the flowers? I must get one.
Sugalova - this is the first time I have heard of a gender reveal cake - I love it!
Natt12321 - seriously....is that a wedding cake? I love it but I thought the oddest wedding cake I ever made was a Dennis the Menace! Lol.
Mel - I love the Welsh dragon too - how did you get the rugby goal posts to stay together?
I hope I haven't missed anyone out - all your work is amazing. Deep respect!
ADayscakes, it was a hydrangea cutter that comes with its own mould, really simple just lots of them.
Thanks all I did have a week off work to make it as I hadn't swelled a cake before, soooo stressed as I was a guest at the wedding.
You cant have too much time off here as you miss loads. I love everyone cakes, we are a clever bunch aren't we? Ha ha.
Love love taking to you all.
ASwelled, omg Barbara, please check your spelling, stressed I meant.
AYou are funny Nanny! Where did you get your hydrangea cutter? Is it just called "hydrangea cutter"? That's probably a stupid question isn't it!
AYes it comes in a pink plastic bag with its own mould, I've seen it Amazon, different flowers, very easy to make, ill take a pic and show you.
AThanks nanny, no stopping you with the pictures now is there! :-) it took me ages to figure out I could add them from my phone, I thought I could only do it on the computer!
A[IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3209098/width/200/height/400[/IMG] there you are Maisie simples!
AThanks nanny! :-)
AI've just bought one Nanny, £7.29, free P&P, ebay. I also bought some whitening powder, can't wait to try both! :-)
Yup! When the next person came to me saying 'Have you ever made a wedding cake?' I couldn't honestly say yes, cos let's be honest, it's not a wedding cake type of cake!! I've done a few bizarre ones
My friends took the idea of a quirky cake and RAN with it!
Nanny - I love the wedding cake!
Sugarluva - The reveal cake is so cute! I really want to do those kind of cakes but I haven't had an order for one yet!
AOmg Natt, I love your mountain! I made a mountain once, it was supposed to be a volcano but I had some lava issues! I was proud of it at the time but I'm embarressed now I've seen yours! :-D
I've just bought one Nanny, £7.29, free P&P, ebay. I also bought some whitening powder, can't wait to try both!
Haha! I ordered mine from Amazon before my Prime runs out! This website has cost me a fortune since I joined
AI know! The list of things I absolutely NEED gets longer every day!
Natt - beautiful work - love the mountain and the cans.
AI've started something with the cutters hadn't I? Natt, thanks so much. And I thought I had an unusual order for a wedding cake last year, but yours tops mine, it was a pigs in mud cake and a ducks in water either bride and groom in each, strange!
Yes dayscakes, I spend a fortune most weeks.
AYes you have Nanny! They've got loads on ebay, not just hydrangeas! I've put some on my watchlist, I hope somebody sneaks a peek for mothers day ideas!
A[IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3209233/width/200/height/400[/IMG] Here they are girls.
AI'm in the middle of making a dirt track cake, it goes against the grain for me as its messy and I cant do messy, stretchy.
