Hi there everyone!

 

I'm starting this an hour early because I'm heading out on a Bay Area delivery! That's a two hour drive so I thought better to start this an hour early than two hours late! LOL!

 

I have a baby shower for the morning and then I'll be staying with our younger daughter and her family for the week and working on an Anniversary cake with her there. They already have our son there so this weekend we are celebrating Father's Day as well! 

 

I hope to check in tonight and see lots of photos. Unfortunately my own computer has been shut down and packed so I don't have a photo to share quite yet! I'll try to post one later.

I'm new to the Friday night cake club...I don't have any pics to show yet as I am in the process of researching my business plan  and such. But I thought I would stop in and say hi!

Finished 2 of my 3 cakes I need to finish for this weekend. Both are for family My sister's birthday is Sunday and her Boyfriend's birthday is Monday.

 

* Pig Cake for my sister's Birthday. It's canned icing for the mud because it had the consistency I needed.

Pig cake is for my sister she loves pigs. I did the mud in canned frosting that I had leftover in the freezer.

* Based this cake on multiple cakes I saw here. Coals are toasted marshmallows.

 

Grill cake for her boyfriend. Not completely happy with this one but they think it's great. Coals are marshmallows that I sliced then took the torch to them. I'll be delivering both of these to them tomorrow.

 

I have a petal cake I need to finish by Sunday for my aunt and my Fiancé came home yesterday saying he needs a papa smurf cake for a guy at work for the 27th.  Might get a cake supply shopping trip out of that cake lol.

Hello CAt and everyone else.  Hope you all had a great week.

 

 

Lovebug, what a cute piggy cake.  I'm partial to pigs so I just love it.

 

Haven't loaded my cake yet.  I only have 1 this weekend after all.  A boy Band cake for a little girl's 10 birthday.  Not even happy with how it turned out but the kids are so I guess that's all that matters.

 

On my way to deliver now.  See you all in a bit.

Good Evening everyone!

 

LoveBug: CUTE!! I am so jealous, I want to do a pig cake soo bad! My husband was just called to the bar and I am throwing a little party/celebration next weekend and I am seriously considering making a pig....but I don't know how I would relate that to him, and he might be offended. Haha,  sooo maybe another time.

 

This is another busy wedding weekend:) The purple cake has 300 monogrammed cupcakes to go along.. wanted to bang my head against a wall doing those, oye! The Orchids are silk, she gave me a couple of stems from her stuff. And the flowerburst is not really making me happy. First attempt though so it turned out ok. Would like another shot at it though. I would do a few things differently.

 

I am working on a 1st birthday 3 tier Cars Cake and I am currently taking a wee break from it. Searching online for some inspiration as I think my brain is fried from the week:) Can't decide on what to do with the top tier....

 

Looking forward to seeing what everyone is up to:)

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

Hello!  :) I am working on a flip-flop cake for my 2 children.  We are having a joint swimming party tomorrow at a friend's house, so I'll be able to post pics after that.  I'm waiting on my mmf/gumpaste "foot holder" (?) to dry so I can put that on right before the party.  I've never done something I had to have stiff before. I'm pretty excited!

Not very happy with the chevron stripes and I should've used ganache underneath, but here it is. I still need to attach 1 more gumpaste flower, but it's going on the side and I want to wait until tomorrow. Really frustrated with the stinkin' stripes..grrr.

I think its the start of summer, Or something in the air.  Not a full moon yet.  Like I said I am not at all happy with my boy band cake.  I couldn't get the bodies of the figures and the arms to stay together.

 

Brettley, your cakes are beautiful,  Yikes 300 cupcakes!!  

 

Sixinarow, your stripes are perfect.  Mine would be a mess.

I finished up a Monster High cake and starting a Mario and Luigi cake.  The Monster High one took awhile and I could not smooth the buttercream on top to save my life!  I will post pictures tomorrow, I am not at home right now!

Sixinarow: That looks AWESOME! We are all our own worst critics I guess. I am sure the girl will love it, how could she not, it's gorgeous. And the flower is stunning. You should post a close-up.

Hi, everyone! I've been MIA for the past couple of weeks because 1. I was working on a cake that I still can't share icon_wink.gif and 2. I was on vacation. No cakes for me this week although I've been working on my cake club's website and some cake show prep work (I'm my ICES chapter's secretary and our cake show chairman).

 

Everyone's cakes are great this week! Lovebug, I am now wracking my brain to think of a reason to make a pig cake. That is so darn cute!

 

CraftyCassie, I made a flip flop cake last summer and it was really fun. I'd love to do another.

 

sixinarow, your cake is lovely.

 

Brettley, beautiful, as always!

 

My most recent cake was from a week and a half ago. It's the one that was the subject of my post about the wedding planner insisting on driving it herself. For some reason, I can't upload images into a post so I put it in my gallery. I'm not usually into the rustic look but it came out kind of cute. Their colors were Denver Bronco blue and orange, thus the orange ranunculus and blue hydrangeas, all gumpaste.

Lot's of hard work tonight, with beautiful cakes to show for it. I just came back from spending the night out with my girlfriends, it's a week off for me, aside from some roses that I'll get started on for a wedding cake next week.
