Opening up another session of the FNCC. Everyone is welcome to share their week, photos of their work, ask for help or provide help if they can!
Sorry everyone for starting so late tonight. We had a memorial for a friend who died suddenly at age 47 today. So we had to travel out of town where we met up with our oldest who took her brother and nephew so the youngest daughter and hubby could attend with us. It was just a very hard day. Where the memorial was held is another 1.5 hours from our younger daughters house where we are spending the weekend so after the memorial and then dinner out with the family we made the drive and, honestly, after a very strong vodka and strawberry lemonade, I suddenly remembered I needed to be posting here. Did I mention it was a very hard day?
No cake this week but am SOOOO looking forward to logging in here again tomorrow and seeing what you all have been working on this week...now back to that lemonade...
Cat, I am so sorry to hear about your friend. Losing a friend hurts, you have my condolences.
It is 2:15 am, I am just eating dinner now, some cottage cheese…
I decided to only do cakes for friends, family and charity and go corporate again. I now realize it was the right choice, I still love to bake I am not young enough to stay up this late finishing a cake! And my kitchen looks like a FEMA case…
I just finished a cake for a friend and it took awhile. It is a very dear friend, though, so well worth the work.
It's actually a cake designed to look like the product his company sells, a wireless transmitter. I will post pictures tomorrow of the product and the cake.

Hi Cat, I'm very sorry for your loss! I hope you find some distraction here...
I had a crazy week. School start, lots of orders etc. Now we're on our way to a well deserved weekend getaway
Sorry for your loss, Cat. My dad died a year ago suddenly. He was 87 years old and normally healthy as a horse. He had never been in the hospital a day in his life. I think about him every day. When people are sickly in and out of hospitals it comes as no surprise when they go home. It is a shocker when they have never been sick and go home suddenly or they get in an accident. Just be comforted and know that they are now in a better place!!! I pray that God will comfort the family and give them peace beyond their understanding.
AAhh sorry to hear that Cat. I made some cupcakes for our vets. We decided to get a puppy last July, and by September found that he had hip dysplasia. The vets have been so lovely and helpful I decided to make some 'loki cupcakes' [IMG]http://www.cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3319990/width/200/height/400[/IMG] Sorry about the rubbish pic. I forgot to take a picture of the finished cupcakes
ACat, sorry for you loss.
This week were simple yellow cake, one Caramel and the other just vanilla BC with design. I'm still working on perfecting free hand designs, as they're not my strengths.

Julia, I love that circus cake!! So adorable, my god daughter would love it!
I have been on glorious vacation since December 20! This was my first week back and I had just one wedding cake. I really enjoyed this one. Will have to do some editing (venue lighting Is awful) but I do have a shot! [IMG]http://www.cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3320099/width/200/height/400[/IMG]
AMorgan I love your cake. The cowboy boots are amazing.
This is the simplest cake I've made in a really long time but it made me the most nervous! One of my husband's relatives bought it for a party for her grandaughter that I was invited to. It seriously stressed me out that all my husband's relatives knew I made the cake and it had been bought for them, but seemed like they sincerely liked it, phew!
AI'm back! The holidays weren't too fun, the whole fam had the stomach flu. Then had couging and colds.. :( my poor babies lost so much weigh! So i am nursing them back with cake! Hehehe
Cat, sorry for your loss. My coworker, 34 yrs old and lives a healthy lifestyle, suffered cardiac arrest while watching UFC at Boston Pizza! He was put on life support :( Praise God he is better now, but they will be implanting a defibrillator inside him. Scary... That's why we always have to live our lives the best we can and love with all our hearts! :) Omgoodness! Everyone's cakes are so pretty!!! Julia, the circus cake is so cute! Cara, those are amazing! MB, love the cookies! Everyone is so talented! Pastry, sometimes the simpliest cake is the most diffucult. Sha, awesome!! Morgan, loving the boots :)
Here's my first cake for 2015! Yo Gabba Gabba cake for my niece's 2nd bday. So cute:)
AI want a big hunk of that strawberry cake! That looks sooo good!
It was really hard for me to not just buy it and eat it! But then I would not be following the healthier eating plan I have AND I would have had to turn around and make another cake for my case! So I resisted :p
Love everyone's cakes You guys are making such fun designs.
