Last full week of school for us. Had a Bon Voyage cake as well as a Grad cake this week, both gone already. This upcoming week is just Father's day but I'm doing a Steampunk hex cake so that will be fun. So for now, just watching baseball and hanging out online!

Just made a buttercream superhero cake with a "C" instead of an S on the logo. It's only okay looking, I am still new at this. Now the souls of my feet are blue because somehow I got food coloring on the floor... icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

Superhero cakes are SO hard to do in buttercream! And, yes, food coloring gets EVERYWHERE so easily! Hopefully you are at the point of your evening where you get to relax?

I learned to make French Macarons today! There were several trial batches a week ago and today it just all worked! ::happy dance::

I have a lion King cake due at 8:30 am. I worked all night and day. I got in a 2 hr nap @ 4 am. My cakes are cooling and my icing is done. It just needs to be colored. It is going to be a 2 layer 9x13. I bought the 6 piece figure set from the Disney store to go on top. Hopefully I'll come up with something decent.

Yea! Leah! I have never even considered making Macarons but I LOVE them!

Angfastic: I love doing "background" cakes. I got an order for one for a Betty Boop cake and I can't wait to make it and stick Betty on it for the party!! Post what you come up with?

I had so much work last week, I can't remember if I even signed in, lol. but this week I have no cake orders. Its been like that, every other week but it hits me hard.

Next week I have a quinceanera cake and I think I'm putting more into the carriage cake base than the cake itself. Hmmm.

Making lots of cake pops tho, cause those go fast even without an order.

I'm having a season like that week super busy, one week dead. I don't have many weeks were I have nothing booked but I do have several where there is only one cake each week. Slower than last summer but enough to keep me busy so I'm not really minding that<G>.

I am finishing up a bridal shower cake for one of my dearest friends. Why I agreed to host the party at my house during the last week of school, and make the cake I have no idea. My house is a mess, my kitchen has been transformed into Cakeland, and my backyard is set to get dusted by some major winds tonight!!!! But somehow, it will all come together....I hope!

Anyway, I need your help. Should I put the flowers on top, or leave them off?? Here is are the links to both from my facebook page.

Dang it! They are public on FB, maybe if you don't have an account. I will upload them to my gallery and provide the link.

Just finished a last minute cake for neighbor. Her grandson's baptism is this weekend. She asked if I could make a simple cake. 'Sure', I said. I thought I'd just put a pretty fondant cross on top and be done with it. Well, I thought the pretty cross would look good on top of a scalloped round of blue fondant, and oh yeah, let's cut little hearts around the edges...and hey, lets emboss another scallop of white fondant and dust it with pearl dust and put in on the blue scallop, THEN lay the blue cross on top of that...and what about some cute white roses in the center...and gee the side of the cake itself looks boring so why not emboss a filigree design around it (it's buttercream) and do a nice shell border at the base and hey some little blue roses would look cute here and there around the base....and....

I've come to the realization that 'simple' is not in my cake vocabulary. I don't do simple. I can't help it. I tried!
