Opening up another session of the FNCC! ALL levels of cakers are welcome to share their week, photos of their work, ask for help or provide help if needed.
Hope to see lots of photos tonight!
Only muffin baking made the schedule this week. I did win the bake off at work and got my blu-ray copy of The Martian today as my prize! This upcoming week will bring donuts...if you have made them please give me tips?
In America this Sunday brings Mother's Day. My plans are really to do absolutely nothing except go to the movies. Other than that I just want peace and quiet and to not have to do anything. Hope you all have a lovely day and that your families find a way to spoil you!
Busy week for me with Mother's day on Sunday. I baked & decorated 72 cookies & 32 cupcakes. I'll post pictures tomorrow night as right now I need sleep. Tomorrow is going to be a long day with pottery class in the morning for three hours followed by our student pottery sale for two hours. I won't get home until supper time & then have some final Mother's day deliveries to make. Hope to see lots of great cakes when I finally get back on here.

@catlharper congrats on the win.
Happy Mother's Day to all the moms!
i am working on my diet so I am avoiding baking, except I have to take cupcakes to work this month.
@Natka81 love the cake.
@cara1982 the rose is amazing, but those straight lines are perfect.
@kstevens looking forward to your pictures. Sounds like you are busy.
Enjoy the weekend!
No orders for me this week thank goodness! Husband was deathly ill to hear him tell it - he had a bad cold... but it was good I had time to take care of the books and just bake for my mom for Mother's Day. She loves lemon shortbread cookies. Planning to make a cupcake bouquet for our big family dinner tomorrow night. It will give me a chance to give these Russian tips a go. My brother is is making the meat and all the kids are making the side dishes. It will be interesting to see what they come up with. There are 4 of them, the youngest is 14 and the oldest is 24 so they should be capable.
Of course you won the contest @catlharper - never doubted you would! Congratulations
@Natka81 Very nice cake and I just noticed the border is made of little pills - excellent detail!
@cara1982 It's so perfect in its execution from the straight lines to the beautiful rose.

@Natka81 your nurse cake looks great!
@cara1982 I love that gold detail on the black cake!
@skyy815 those feathers look like a lot of work. Great job!
@SweetShop5 the table looks great but we need a close up of that cake....
@annykimmm great piping! I wish I had those skills.
Happy Mother's Day to all you moms! I did sugar cookie bouquets and cupcakes for Mother's Day. For the cookies, I followed a video by Montreal Confections. If you like to make cookies and don't already follow her, I highly suggest that you start. Her videos are great!
I changed up the display from how she did hers & love how they turned out. They were a lot of work but I think worth the effort. I used green tissue paper as greenery. All the little details for the cupcakes were done using plunger cutters.

[postimage id="3807" thumb="900"]It is great to see all these wonderful creations! I had 1st communion cakes for twin with cake pops to match. They are butter cream with modeling chocolate decorations.
Such beautiful and creative work, everyone! No cake from me this weekend - did not have any orders, and decided to skip making anything for Mother's Day.
Happy Mother's Day!
