Just a small request in the lounge.

Since I've lost my ancient run down computer with it's many favorites (websites, tutorials,  business pages, cake info) trying to rediscover and tag the favorite places is keeping me busy.  There was one website with a speciality for making  the prettiest sheet and round cakes. Mostly buttercream cakes decorated with brilliant colorful fondant cut outs, so that the top of the sheet cake could almost tell a story.   I have Sharon Zambitos DVD and website, but this is another decorator who has posted several cakes in the gallery.

 

I know how sheet cakes are not popular with everyone  "no makie sheet cakie"  and all, but this lady was a genius with her cakes whether they are round and rectangular.  It was a business website, there was probably a facebook page also.  I just opened a facebook page so I could store my few nice cakes and hook up to all of the dozens of great decorators and follow them.  The next time my computer breaks down and dies, I'll not lose all the good stuff as the facebook page wont' disappear with my favs, my photos, and all of my links.

 

anyhow I'm finding almost every link except this one. Maybe she's even a decorator here on CC? If luck holds someone will remember her, and introduce me to a few others that I've yet to know.:)

I would be very interested to find out as well.  Making cakes purely for pleasure I am not interested in making multiple tier cakes.  And single tier are much more common where I live anyway.

Exactly right @thecakewitch Yes it is.  You got it in one.   Thank you.   This is a really fun website for sheet cake and one layer round cakes.  I see that there are some beautiful tiered round cakes also.  @cazza1  hope you enjoy these cakes also.

You're welcome.  I'd drawn out a simple draft of the dreaded anniversary sheet cake grrrrrrrrr with this designers cakes in mind.  I'm still in a gloomy fuss about that one.  So I thought that if I found her page again, Maybe her beautiful cakes would inspire me a bit.  (and all of that work making pretty flowers and leaves goes the wayside) :ouch:

Oh, so good to see good cakes that are only one layer high.  I don't know what you yanks have against single tiers.  I take that back, I do.  Tiered cakes are easier to design so that they look impressive.  Single tiers need more imagination.

no business page, and no business for me.  I'm just a home baker with most of my photos on the CC album on my page here.  I've posted lots of my disasters and flubs also.

I'm pretty good at making messes and sharing my bloopers with my fellow bakers here for laughs.  I 'laugh' a lot at most of my decorating.........:)

 

You have some sweet cakes on your facebook business page that you've posted on facebook.  Very pretty.  Hopefully you'll get some more followers and lots of business.

Wishing you much success and prosperity!!

AThanks Mbalaska, lots of business, maybe later 4-5 years from now. Right now it's lots of messing around with dummy cakes, SMBC, fondant and gumpaste.
