Thanks for the kind comments everyone. All the decorations were made out of fondant.. not sugar paste. Hope you guys like it.
Cakeddc, your cakes are adorable,
Baking Me Crazy, just love the cake.
I was a little busy this weekend - 300 cupcakes and a 6" for a wedding. Did I mention I hate cupcakes??? Man, I don't think I'll do that again. Weird thing though, the silly little 6" gave me the most trouble. That butter cream just didn't want to stay on! Finally, after redoing it 3 times, I gave up and used ganache, which I figured was fair game since the only specifics were NO FONDANT! Turned out good though, and I'm glad it's over. On to a candy cake for my granddaughters birthday party next week!
Have a good week!
TheLoveofSugar, don't give up on it. There are so many things you can do to help with the cake decorating and so many tutorials to learn. My dad actually told me I would never make any money when I first started out. Must have been about 20 years ago. He's dad to eat humble cake (cause I don't make too many pies, lol) many times over. Every time I receive a payment, every time he's with me to deliver a cake, every time he sees people walking in the door, everytime I go out to spend the money I made selling cakes, everytime I pay bills... guess i've made money rofl... I love the running joke with him.
You already are successful just the fact that he acknowledged your achievements. Nothing feels better than when our family members let us know they are supporting us. That is all the success I need.
