Merry Christmas to you too!

Nope, definitely not working tonight....in fact I booked off the next 2 weeks from baking, I'm too busy at my Salon.

Heading off to bed....completely pooped out, I had 42 people here last night for dinner and festivities.

Have a good night! I hope you're not working either.

Not working tonight! I will be next week, however, as I have a 340 cupcake wedding on 1/1/10.

Way to start out the year!!

thanks- I had some work to do today. My best friend's bridal shower is tuesday plus i'm moving the next day (stupid i know, it just worked out that way) so i'm trying to have it done monday. fortunately it's just a 3 tier stacked, so i didn't have too much to bake. And i decided not to try my hand at a topsy turvy this time around. But I believe I successfully made black fondant on my first attempt! hurray for me- now i just need more black coloring- i used my whole container icon_sad.gif But I'm upgrading to americolor so that's nice icon_biggrin.gif

Merry Christmas!!

I really didn't think you'd have one of these threads tonight! Hopefully most can enjoy their holiday with family (assuming they LIKE their extended family members!) icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

I'm still walking on air because my son called today from Florida to tell us he was officially engaged! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Working on decorations for what will be my best friends birthday cake (born New Year's Eve) and possibly....maybe.....if the court house is open that day as well...my wedding cake! B-day/New Year's/Wedding Cake....wowza! Hubby (I've called him hubby for years now) says he wanted to be married by the end of the year. So......heh heh!!

global, I'm a GOOD mother-in-law. My offer is there if they want it. If they want the cake from somewhere else, I am ok with that.

Its going to be hard for me to NOT just take over but I'm going to work very very hard at it! I'm not the MOB and it's not my wedding. I'm here if they want me ... I'm here if they need me.

(And the good news is they don't have to plan their date around my catering schedule now! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif They just have to plan it around college finals. But since daugher in law to be is also a school teacher, I'm sure she'll factor that in! thumbs_up.gif )

One cake done, the other is stack and ready to add the details. One is 1st DD's college grad cake. The other is 2nd DD's 21st BD cake for tomorrow!! Decided to keep them "simple".

Got to use my new airbrush to paint the fondant grad cake. I've had the AB a couple of months, but never had time etc to order the colors. DH gave me the 41 color set of little bottles for Christmas. Lots of fun. Can't wait to have time to really try it out!

Debi, the extra layer of icing worked very well. I thinned it a bit as you suggested, and had no problems. Thanks!

Jamie that's so awesome....CONGRATULATIONS! icon_biggrin.gif

As far as baking 340 cupcakes (and filling each one and icing each one) I get the batter, filling and icings made up ahead of time. For some reason, I don't freeze cupcakes. I can easily bake 6 dozen at a time and just get an assembly line going. Big numbers have ceased to faze me any more. Now, 1000 cupcakes - that would get my attention.

Congratulatins _Jamie_ and Debi (MOG)! Great news!
