Mel - it sounds wonderful and like the others I can't wait to see the final product. Now that you've done the carving, do you still hate topsy turvys or do you like them better now?

sorry Mel, Edna is my new goddess. 10 WEDDINGS, in one weekend? I am in awe. I might do 10 in a month if I had a shop and that would be pushing it.

Mel, how are things going? Get plenty of rest!

Oh... that is SO wrong!! How DARE You turn on me at this point? I am DEVASTATED!! *gasp* did you hear that? I think my cake just crashed to the floor! waaaah!

But seriously, I have always loved the LOOK of TT cakes, but I've been scared of MAKING them. This one totally changed me. I am no longer scared of them one bit. Now, I am a little disappointed about some fondant trouble I had. I finally tried Michelle F's fondant and have some trouble with it. I don't think the problem was with the recipe, I think I just didn't knead it enough before covering the cake, and ended up with some wrinkles and tears in a few places. I was able to hide most of it with decorations, but I know if it weren't for that the cake would be really good! I think my customer is going to be super pleased though.

I promise you I will post a pic tomorrow after I get back, but I have to do some shopping while I'm in the big city, so it won't be until later in the day!

Ok you guys! Your wait is over.

I don't remember how much background I have given, so let me go over it again. This is an open house for an eclectic little shop and art studio combo. The place is AWESOME!! I ended up buying a bunch of cupcake/cake related stuff! Her shop ROCKS!

Anyway, the theme for the party was Alice in Wonderland, they were kind of reflecting the tea party. Her fave part of that movie was the 'painting the roses red' part, so I did some of the ribbon roses on the cake white, but most red. Then reflected that on the cupcakes as well. It turned out really cute. She was thrilled, and I'm proud of it. The best part was when I pulled up in front of the shop I could see all the stuff inside and the cake was the perfect colors!! It was like the cake was a perfect match! That made me happy since she left it all up to me!

She had 2 doen cupcakes, 5 doz. brownie bites, 5 doz fruit tarts, and 5 doz mini cheesecakes as well! Lots of food, but it all looked so great! Wish I could've just hung out there all day but I'd have left owing HER money! Too much cool stuff.

WOW - that is really terrific. You did a fantastic job Mel and I'm so glad you had fun too. I can't wait to see everyone else's stuff too. I'm moving to a place that actually has a kitchen next month, so I'll be able to practice and get tips on how to improve from all you lovely ladies.

Great job, Mel! Looks fantastic and I love the way you did the cupcakes, too. Guess you don't need the Lindy Smith directions anymore (I just PM'ed you - sorry - should have read the entire thread)! icon_lol.gif

Now you're ready to tackle the next TT cake with no worries!
