Opening up another session of the FNCC! Everyone is welcome! This is a place to share your week, your work, ask questions if you need help, answer questions if you can help or just hang out and find out what the others have done with their weeks!

 

Hope to see lots of photos tonight!

Hi everyone! Well, today has been a very exciting day. I found out that one of my cakes is going to be featured in the next issue of Cake Central Magazine! I can't show it to you here but I will be featuring it in my blog this Sunday. I'm just very happy to have the opportunity!

 

Other than that I had cupcakes for my son's Little League:

 

I also have the two 6 & 8 inch stacked cakes for his school's 6th Grade Graduation due Tuesday night so baking for those begins tomorrow. I have to make the fondant for the hibiscus cut outs and surf boards to decorate simple buttercream iced cakes tomorrow morning. So, basically, I'm in a one day lull and just get to hang out here and enjoy whatever you guys share tonight!

Congratulations catlharper! That's so exciting, can't wait to see your cake! icon_smile.gif

 

I'm working on a pirate cake for tomorrow (almost finished, but I needed to stop looking at it for a few minutes) so I'm trying to find a tutorial for rock candy to make a "pouring" root beer mug cake for next week. Any tips on the rock candy and wrapping it around the dowel would be greatly appreciated!

The edition is simply outstanding! There are SO many pages to this one and SO many amazing cakes. You can get a digital copy for only $2 here: http://shop.cakecentralmagazine.com/

 

If you do, my cake is on page 65. 

 

Sadly I know nothing about the whole rock candy thing. I have made poured sugar before and I would guess...just a guess here...that if you let it begin to cool till it's thickened you could, theoretically, pull it up out of the pan. Hopefully someone will have something more concrete for you tonight. If not I would go and find a cake here where they have done that and PM them to see how they did it.

That is SO cute! I really like your tree too! I have never used tappits before but my cousin swears by them.

That's what I was thinking. I might try to pour it out on a silicone mat and wrap it that way...

 

Very cute cakeddc! I love your robin!

 

Pirate cake done! YAY for an early night!

Cat, how exciting! I don't have a subscription but maybe I'll buy your issue!

 

sixinarow, sorry, I can't help with your question, either icon_sad.gif.

 

cakeddc, that is an adorable cake!

 

My cake for the week is done and delivered. I already posted a pic in another thread but this is a slightly better one. It went great until it was time to cover it in fondant and I had an "OMG, how am I going to do this?" moment but, with help from my CC community, it turned out fine. Odd delivery, though...I had to leave it in the back room because the reception wasn't set up yet. It's a one room venue so they were going to have to tear down the ceremony set-up and re set for the reception. The staff at the venue asked me where the "big cake" was. I had to tell them I had no idea as I wasn't hired to do the wedding cake, just the groom's cake. I do hope "the big cake" made it icon_lol.gif. It's white cake with raspberry buttercream.

 

Here it is pre-decorated...

 

And this is the pony, the clip art I used to cut it out and copy the shading. My fondant version is in the back on the red mat.

Elcee!!! I totally LOVE your cake! We are a "Ford" family and have a particular fondness for Mustangs so yup, love your cake! I hope the Brides cake arrived too!

 

As for CC Magazine, yes, you can just get the one issue. It's definitely worth the $2!

Your copy of the mustang is outstanding -- identical to the printout! I just read your thread about covering it in 1 piece, it looks great! There's no way I could get all those nooks and curves without cracks or folds!
