Ok seriously, where is the camera. I often feel like I live in my own reality show but seriously.....whats up. I am making one of my bestest friends cakes for her family celebrations tomorrow... one wasc sinks in the middle WHY? Then another batch shrinks and pulls away from the side........and then I did a chocolate chip cake and trying to carve it...........note to self do not ever think about carving anything with chocolate chips and now I try to crumb coat and the cake is just rolling underneath my frosting..........seriously where is the camera? What the heck am I doing wrong????

Hay, I'm in So Cal too...maybe its this crazy heat and humidity that did your cakes in. It's been so hot & humid, I can't imagine having the oven on too!

Tracy your cakes are amazing!
Isn't this weather too weird?
I was in OC last weekend to see Beth Moore at the Mariners church, it was awesome!

Mbark, thanks for the compliment. Your cakes are pretty cool too! I hate to sound ignorant but I don't know who that is you came here to see. The weather has been weird. Yesterday afternoon it thundered, lightningd and poured!!! And was hot. Luckily, I had the week off from caking so I didn't have to deal with "technical difficulites" caused by the weather.

I went to OC the other day to check out the cake stores, not a whole lot of options here. I wanted to go to Calico. Have you been there? do you like it? any other favorites? thanks!

I am in South OC near Irvine and there are three cake stores that I go to. Not to mention Joannes & Michaels when in a pinch. I am a lucky girl!

I am jealous! I drag my poor kids all over God's green earth looking at cake stores. I guess it is like my toys r us or my hubby Guitar Center. I am just amazed by all the different stuff each store has. My hobby is going to nickel and dime me to death icon_smile.gif

I know what you mean. I am running out of storage space like so many others here on CC. I probably should not mention that I love to look at cake supplies online too. Now that is dangerous! LOL

BTW, totallycaked, were you able to bake new cakes for your event?

Hey! i'm in OC too! I LOVE calico! Love it! It's the best store in OC for supplies and being helpful. I also like orange novelty in Costa Mesa - the owner is super nice and is willing to help you on anything - design, ideas etc.. I have never been to ABC cuz I heard they are mean there. There are only these 3 stores that I have heard of in the area.

yea, it's been hot but I have AC on!
