OPening up another session of the FNCC! ALL levels of cakers are welcome to tell us about their week, share photos of their work, ask for help if needed or provide help if they can!
Hi everyone! I have to say that I totally forgot today was Friday! This new work schedule, where my "weekend" is Tues/Wed has managed to really turn my week around and today really feels like Tuesday to me, not Friday. So I was sitting here, handing out, watching the game on tv when I realize the Giants are wearing Friday Orange...FRIDAY. LOL!
Hope your week has been great and you have some wonderful creations to share!

Cake for a 96 year old!
Really beautiful @Pastrybaglady
Nothing for me this week. I was going to make my large dragon egg cake this weekend, but work got stupid and traffic and road construction got stupid and I got home late last night, and I have to be up early for work tomorrow so I didn't want to spend all day today working on it. Next weekend hubby and I should have the house to ourselves though so I'll try to do it next weekend.
Hi everyone! So happy to drop in tonight and see all the creations!
@jellybeanlane Love your teddy! SO cute!
@Natka81 Your grad cake is cool! Is the hat part cake?
@SoniaMT Your shopkins creations are GREAT! I know several little ones in our circle who would adore the cake and the cookies!
@Pastrybaglady That cake is SO elegant!
I won't have any cakes till the first week of July. And then it's sort of a big one. Our Museum Directors birthday is the 4th of July so she is one of 3 July birthdays at my work...the first cake of mine they will have and it has to be her birthday! Oy Vey! She mentioned that she gets a LOT of flag cakes so I have to make sure it has nothing to do with that! LOL! Still looking for inspiration. One thing I do know...it will be much better than the local bakery that we have had so far. They give us day old cupcakes each week and they are ok but they gave us a cake this week that wasn't picked up and it just wasn't good. So while the baking bar is low I feel like the decorating bar is very. high.
Hope you guys have a great weekend! I'll stop in tomorrow to see if more has been posted!

Wow so many yummy treats! I love you buttercream piped flowers @Pastrybaglady Not good at that myself so I admire it!
I've done a toadstool cake for my friend's daughter (vanilla cake with nutellla swiss meringue buttercream). She had a cake like that herself when she was a young girl so she wanted one for her daughter too.
The s'mores brownies were a last minute project I did with my 6 year old son for a bake off sale at school. He had watched me and our neighbour's son the day before and begged me to make something too - at 5pm when he came home! Grrr... I was a bit hesitant as most of the people know I'm baking a lot and might think I did it for him. But in fact I only helped with the meringue topping as it had to be torched. And he got 1st place...YEAH! My neighbour got 3rd place for the hamburger cupcakes (I posted last week) but they were not in the same category (age) so at least they didn't compere against each other.
[postimage id="4188" thumb="900"]I've just finish the cake for my Goddaughter baptism. I just cant believe how long it took me to make those frills!
Great work everyone! I'm late posting as it was a busy couple of days. I made a dozen cupcakes for yesterday morning plus a birthday cake for my boyfriend and then another cake for today. I was up until 3am yesterday morning decorating my boyfriend's cake and so was exhausted while his family was here for the day. I wasn't sure I could stay awake long enough to decorate the cake for today....lol
Chibi Dead pool cake for my boyfriend and a tea party themed cake for today.

@kstevens What a great idea for the katana - such a thoughtful and awesome touch! I bought my college daughter one of those katana umbrellas that straps to your back. It had an unexpected element - an actual blade if you unscrewed the handle. She wore it whenever she had to go somewhere at night by herself. Kept her safe for 6 years!
Thanks for all the sweet comment's.... it's been really tiring and somewhat more difficult lately.... I guess it's the MS it makes my hands nd fingers go numb a lot... but I am determined not to give up!
love all the beautiful cakes etc. such wonderful talent you all have!!!
