I'd like to know what it's worth...out of curiosity...my guess is around 15,000$.
14$ a serving (again a guess) @ 845 servings plus about 3 or 4k in handmade extras......

Didn't watch the wedding but have been looking at pictures for the past hour. Can't seem to unplug.

No cakes tonight. Will bake 5 this weekend and prep for decorating next week. Can't wait to try some new recipes!

Working on: nothing. Went clothes shopping for an interview and so maybe I can get away from Wal-Mart.

Should have worked on: figures for my Mother's Day cake for next weekend. Oh well, I can do them after work tomorrow or Sunday.

I didn't watch the wedding but I watched some shows ABOUT the wedding. Kate is beautiful. Her dress was elegant. The cake was AMAZING. I love seeing a classic white wedding cake taken to a new level.

Working on a few things for a Relay for Life Auction on Sunday. Then I am headed south-my brother's home was damaged in the tornadoes on Wednesday and my sister is doing relief work in her area. She has opened her home to those who need to take a shower or do laundry.
Makes me very grateful for what I have.

Take care, LKing. The tornado damage is beyond belief.

I've been up since 5 a.m., so you guys carry on.

Mother's Day is in a week? I'm still picking Easter grass out of the carpet.

Delivered my weekend cake today. I'm currently designing a princess cake for next weekend. Is there any real difference between cake sparkles and sparkling sugar other than the size of the grain?

I'll be coating ice cream cones for the turrets and the sparkling sugar seems to be cheaper overall.

Went to bed at 2, got up at 4:30, back in bed by 7:30, and up for the day at 9:30. Had a fab time dishing about the wedding with a friend! I got out my big sun hat and everything. LOL

Lking- sorry about your brothers home,
That's fantastic what your sister is doing!

Didn't watch the wedding, but as soon as I woke up
This morning I was online searching for cake pics!

I am doing my first Topsy turvy this weekend :|
I'm a bit nervous as it's for a dear friends 50th!
I want it to be perfect for her!
I'm just waiting for my kids to go to bed so I can get to work!

Popping in to say HI!

Second weekend in a row with no cakes for me after a crazy April.

Just finished watching the wedding with my daughter (DVR!) Very impressed with the grace & elegance of the royal couple. Blown away by both cakes.

Praying that our caker friends in the South are safe. Take care everyone.

I'm working on royal icing decorations for my nephew's camping cake that's due on Sunday. Can anyone tell me how many servings I can get out of the Wilton Guitar Pan? I've looked through all teh material that came with the pan and tried googling it. The best I found was that someone thought it was about 15? Any help would be appreciated. The party is about 50 strong and I need to know how many cupcakes to make in addition to the cake. Thanks in advance!

Wilton shaped pans generally serve 12-15.

I just finished a 2 tier football themed birthday cake for my nephew, and a 2 tier topsy turvy cake to match some invites. Now that the kids are in bed, I just filled all 3 tiers of a wedding cake, and I am currently stacking and carving a mud cake into the shape of a jaguar's head for the groom's cake. I am very VERY tired, and its only 11:26! Don't know how I did it, but I managed to be ahead of schedule! I was prepared for a 3 am bed time icon_biggrin.gif looks like 1 am might work!

I just finished my son's birthday cake. His 14th birthday was yesterday, but he's having friends over Saturday night. He wanted a cake that looks like his guitar. I made it...it's very brown...but it looks like his Ovation. The only thing not brown is the the cake...it's red velvet. I think dark chocolate would have been more appropriate...but I just made what he asked for.

I was working on my competition piece due tomorrow. The roof gave me fits so wish me luck that it holds. I have to assemble two minor things on site. Sadly it's 2:20 am and I'm volunteering at the show at 7amicon_sad.gif Night everyone.

Sparkling sugar is different from cake sparkles. Cake sparkles are edible glitter - flakes and no real taste. The sparkling sugar is a grain (not a flake) and sparkles beautifully. I also think it sticks to bc better and more evenly.
