Hi everyone,

 

I've been down with bronchitis the past two weeks. The party went quite well but I'm prone to bronchitis and felt it coming on the morning of the party. By Monday I was in bed...for a week. This week hasn't been too much different but I finally turned the corner for better and am finally feeling like a normal person. One who gets very tired very quickly but still! I'll take it! LOL! 

 

Needless to say there's been no baking of any sort going on here. I have a small birthday cake for Sunday but that's really it. The real happening here is little league is starting up so we've been busy with practice and such. I'm team mom this year since, with my hand, I have a very light Spring season this year. Kids got their jersey's today and our first real game is Monday! 

 

Hope everyone is doing well and if you have been under the weather that life is treating you a bit better now!

Hi everyone, I'm new to cc and fancy cake making (and so many things actually, recently dissolved a 10 year common law marriage and about to give a new but crappy house mate the boot... lots of change all at once) and so far have largely been a lurker on cc but FNCC is too excellent for me to resist

Ana, thank you...it's been something else. Between my hand and this illness I, literally, have not been myself in 4 months. I'm so DONE! I'm a really lousy patient too...my poor hubby!  The only upside with this illness is that I've lost 11 pounds the past two weeks! Amazing how easy it is to diet when food sounds horrid to you! LOL! Silver lining!

 

 

Edie! Sounds life is being anything BUT fair to you these days! That is a whole lot of change to be happening in a short span of time. Hope things go well with the roommate change over and you find a great one to replace her. 

 

It doesn't say where you are from but I'm guessing you are not American by the way you "glazed the cake before frosting". So I'm dying of curiosity about what you did glaze it with? Can't wait to see the one in April now! 

 

My summer season is just beginning to book up and it's mostly children's birthday cakes! Very odd indeed! Usually I have a few weddings, a few showers (bridal and baby) and then a kid's cake or two but this summer I have 6 booked already! SIX! It kinda amazes me that people are now paying that kind of money for a birthday cake. Not that I'm not happy for the money just surprised!

 

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! We are celebrating our son's "Gotcha Day". That is the day when we all stood in court as a family and the judge finalized his adoption 12 years ago. We had him from birth...literally, he was born into my hands...but the paperwork takes awhile so he was 10 mos old before it was finalized. Anyways, we do a small celebration each year. Today it's going to go see the Lego Movie and then out to his favorite restaurant for lunch. My first real outing in two weeks and I'm thrilled! LOL!

Cat, so sorry you still haven't been feeling well, but glad that you seem to be on the mend.  Take care and enjoy your day!

Sorry to hear you have been ill Cat, our family is getting over the same thing. This cake was for a young lady visiting FL for a horse riding event, her mom called me from Ohio and asked me to surprise her at the event with the cake. The cupcakes were for a 7 year old's birthday.

Thank you very much both of you :)

Veronica1203 Posted 10 Mar 2014 , 2:11am

 

This is my cakes from this weekend.  All the cupcakes were donated for a Relay For Life event.

gscout73 Posted 10 Mar 2014 , 5:57am

Rosie, that is such a cute idea for cupcakes! I hope you don't mind if I use you for inspiration.

Rosie93095 Posted 10 Mar 2014 , 2:49pm

Thanks ladies, everyone has some beautiful cakes this week.

The horse was a clip art that I printed out after adjusting the size and cut out of fondant with a knife.

 

You are more than welcome to use the cupcake idea! I have been doing them that way for awhile. It adds a little "sophistication" to the serving.:):smile:

Rosie93095 Posted 10 Mar 2014 , 2:50pm

Veronica- I love the fish cake!

I noticed you live in Elijay- my folks had some property up there for years, it is a lovely place!

Gerle Posted 10 Mar 2014 , 4:34pm

Veronica, beautiful cakes!  I especially like the fish and the baby cakes.

LizzieAylett Posted 10 Mar 2014 , 4:42pm

Cat, that's a lovely idea about the "gotcha day" celebration.  My cake this weekend was for friends who had just had their daughter officially granted to them and were dedicating her at church.  She is such a gorgeous, happy wee girl and they are a lovely family.

 

"Garden Party" - strawberry cake with gumpaste flowers, hand-painted bunting and brush embroidery embellishments on a cake for my friends' daughter's dedication.

 

 

I am really pleased with how this cake turned out, but am annoyed that I somehow managed to have one side of the lower tier slanty.  But everyone was very happy with it and it was great to be able to add to the specialness of their day.

Veronica1203 Posted 11 Mar 2014 , 2:53am

Thank you Rosie.  I have lived in Ellijay my entire life.  I can't imagine living anywhere else. 
The fish mold was something I bought about 10 yrs ago and this is the very first time I have used to mold fondant.  It worked great. My mom thought I carved them from scratch.  I told her I did :) 

EdieBabe Posted 11 Mar 2014 , 4:52am

Wow ladies - such amazing cakes, I am truly a novice and feel lucky to be here... Hopefully I'll be able to learn enough to wow you back;) I haven't gotten to the linger story about last weekends big cake yet because after a staff Xmass party (hospitality industry always has Xmass in Feb or March) I came down with a nasty round of food poisoning... probably oysters... I ate a lot of them. Finally feeling well enough to try some plain rice so hopefully by tomorrow I'll be tip-top again. Is it wrong that even in my delerium all I dream of is cake making and decorating?? Lol.

Hi everyone! I don't know how many of you may be getting this message. I don't actually get too many notifications from here so I love coming back and seeing what I missed!

 

Sorry about Friday night and no Cake Club...we had guests over and I totally forgot until Saturday morning! We will have to make up for it this Friday with LOTS of photos! I have a few to share so it will be a good night for me to catch up with all of you!

Oh great to hear :)

Gerle Posted 16 Mar 2014 , 9:16pm

Glad to hear it wasn't because you had a relapse!  I was afraid you might be sick again and was hoping that wasn't the problem.

catlharper Posted 17 Mar 2014 , 7:05pm

Thankfully, no, not a relapse! Just a houseful of family and way too much to do! LOL! We had another baby born in our family this past week so we got to go meet him that night too. Just crazy busy weekend!

Actually I'm in BC, Canada but am heavily influenced by Australian cake practices as the afore mentioned ex hubby is one of those and for the record we are getting along better now than the tail end of common law marriage experience... of course it helps he is on another continent at the moment helping his parents through their divorce.  The room mate is a he who came at the recommendation of a bestie girlfriend of mine who is surprised & embarrassed at his crap behaviour and in Bali at the moment sooo yeah... sucking it.  Not to worry though I am resilient as all get out and I've been through worse hahahaha.

catlharper Posted 18 Mar 2014 , 4:45pm

Edie, Life keeps throwing stuff at us and it's really hard to get through it and keep on feeling creative. Whatever you are doing is working!

This weekend found me commissioned to provide a couple small cakes for a woman's birthday - 2 small because her friend couldn't chose which flavour so went with both

This is the lonesome cake mentioned in my previous post a minute ago... I tried to embed 2 photos in one post but seems like it'll only accept one per post...

Rosegin Posted 6 Apr 2014 , 6:29pm

AThis was my weekend project. I'm pretty happy with it but I see some things that could be improved upon. [IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3216868/width/200/height/400[/IMG]
