Thread Starter 

Opening up another session of the FNCC! Everyone is welcome to join us. Just stop by, tell us how your week went, talk about whatever you have been working on or whatever has been going on at your place this week. Ask for any help you might need or try to help anyone who asks. I'll be here till 11pm PST but will check back in the morning to see who, around the world, checked in after that point!

 

Hope to see lots of photos tonight of everyone's work!

Hi there everyone,

 

Eventful week around here. I got my 2nd demo cake done:

 

Playful, girly, with a touch of modern! All mmf covered.

 

It was tons of fun making it. One of the fun things I get to do this time of year is design my demo cakes so it's being fun. This week I was very happy to get it out of the way early since this morning we had a pipe break and I had to deal with that most of the day.  

 

Sunday is Super Bowl here in the US and we are 49'r fans in our household so it's gonna be a big day. My kitchen is filled with food for Sunday since food for the game is as important as the game itself<G>. Houseful of food and people all yelling at the tv...it will be lots and lots of fun!

 

Hope things are going great for all of you too!

I officially relaunched my business! I'm a freaking mess, but so excited. Everyone I know, knows about it and I'm so afraid of having to tell them that I failed, again. 

 

I am full of self doubt and worried that my skills aren't up to snuff. I can't seem to ruffle a piece of fondant to save my life. 

 

But I did have one order for cupcakes, and I think they were passable.

Working on a small 4 inch cake (it's about 6 inches tall though!), covering it with fondant in advance of painting it tomorrow. Just wanted to try out the painted cake technique I saw on Craftsy, planning to do a pea**** feather on the side of my ivory fondant.

It was also only my 3rd time covering in fondant, didn't chill my crumb coat enough unfortunately but that's how you learn isn't it!

I think the cupcakes are simply lovely. I wouldn't beat yourself up so very much. I have seen what is out there and it never shocks me that there are those who clearly don't know what they are doing and yet getting paid for it! You clearly have artistic talent. Just keep working on your craft...you can always move up and up and up. But do what you love. Any time it becomes too much of a job then it's not fun anymore.

post #9 of 29
Yes, definitely! And I also love those cupcakes, they're just beautiful.

I just got done making a groundhog day birthday cake for my cousin, and handpainting a superhero cake for a friend of mine. I was really pleased with how they turned out! I've been teaching myself all about decorated cookies lately, so it was nice to do some cakes!

Hi Everyone,

I don't post very often sometimes I just read the posts late at night. But this week I finished my daughter's personal shower cake.

This was not a hard cake nor a very large one, but everything that could have gone wrong managed to happen. I finally finished it at

nine this evening just in time for tomorrow's event. When my my head stops spinning I will take a picture and send it.

 

Happy baking,

Wildrose6633

Have a great day

Sammy! that looks SO cool! I have marginal painting talent so I'm always in awe of those who do it so well!

Wildrose, sounds like a nightmare day. Thankfully I've only had those rarely but they are the days when I wonder if I'm in the right profession. Fortunately the next cake usually goes very very well and reaffirms my passion again. Sure sucks on the bad days tho! Hopefully it all turned out well in the end.

Hi all,

 

It's been a while since I have posted. I usually read the posts if I am up though. I am finishing up for the night. I have Monster High Cupcakes and Cake along with a Toopy and Binoo cake, and a Jake and the Neverland Pirates cake. I just finished the toppers for the cakes and cupcakes now to let them dry for a night. Finished earlier than expected so I might get to sleep in!

 

My daughters birthday is on Sunday so I am going to "Paint" that tomorrow. She is having a paint party birthday, so I am going to make a splatter cake! The top and bottom tier splatter and I think I will leave the middle tier just white with a bright pink peony or some sort of flower.. Not sure yet, I made a few different kinds just not sure which will look best. I bought tri fold cardboard in hopes that I can save the splatter mess on my kitchen walls!!

A compromise is the art of dividing a cake in such a way that everyone believes he has the biggest piece.
