Hi everyone! I'm at my last night of work here at Target! I got a full time job at a local museum which starts Monday!!
Hope to see lots of cakes this weekend!!
I have to bake cupcakes this weekend, but nothing fancy chocolate with chocolate buttercream.
Congratulations on the new job!
I'm working on some dragon egg mini cakes this weekend. I'm a huge Game of Thrones/Song of Ice and Fire fan, so I'm just doing it for fun. I'm using Alton Brown's chocolate pound cake recipe. The first ones are in the oven now; so far so good. I am so excited. I will definitely post photos when they're done! (I'll decorate them tomorrow; I colored the fondant for the scales last night.)
I made 2 cakes this week I just make cakes for family and friends, this is the first time I've made 2 cakes for the same weekend!! I don't know how some of u turn out loads of cake every week!! Anyway the first is a football cake for a coworker and the second is Cinderella but from the new movie (she has butterflies all over her dress!)

The same person was having a big family birthday party the next day. This cake fought me the whole way and the customer arrived early to pick it up and I wasn't ready! So I rushed it. It could have been better if I had more time to look at it and think about what would have made it better. The customer was happy so let it go and move on the next...

I had to do some research because this guitar is unusual with the off center whole. This guitar costs $20,000!!!
OK, let's see if this works:
The Game of Thrones mini egg cakes! Took 6-7 hours total, from coloring the fondant and baking the cakes from scratch, cutting out all the little scales and painting them and placing them on. I am happy with how they turned out!
More photos in the gallery!
Sorry after all that spam I couldn't find this thread Anyways I'll post the Cinderella in the next post it never lets me do it all in one go!!

Here's my work for the week, it was pretty hectic!
I finally got my Russian tips in the mail Friday, and I had to test them out! They are AMAZING and really easy to use actually! I only tested one of the tips.
I also made this princess cake pops and cinderella cupcakes for a client:
It was also my cousin's birthday, so I surprised him with some Drake themed cupcakes:
Finally, I made a pink rosette smash cake with matching rosette cupcakes:
I'm running out the door right now so have no time to really praise all of the work this week but WOWZA!!!
I'll come back later and be specific!!! LOL!
Oh wow! These these cakes cupcakes and cake pops are all gorgeous but Russian tips... Never heard of them so I googled and fell in love! They are gorgeous cupcakes and now I want some!
Just finished the cupcakes to go with the cake!!
