Friday Night Cake Club for 8/23/13 - Page 2

post #16 of 91

Thanks.  I firmed up my icing and it's crusting.  Will recover in the morning.  I'll let you know how it goes.  I agree that the icing was to soft.

I'd be too embarrassed to add any of my pictures to this thread. I am constantly blown away by the talent of people on here. 

 

Wow. Just wow!

Hi Cat and everyone, 

 

Cazza , congratulations on 30 years together . The cake is absolutely beautiful , I am guessing it is fruit so you can gaze at it for a little while yet. 

 

Howsweet , I know it has been said already , but WOW . 

 

Well just one cake for me this week , ( paid one ) , but I am working on my entries for the Gold Coast Show. I have entered about six categories and and striving to get at least three completed. 

 

I have had oven issues so it is just as well I only had one cake , and I can't get a technician here until the 2nd of September . Luckily I had cleared next week for the show as I am a steward and will be there everyday. 

 

Here is the cake I did this week , it was a first birthday . The Mum loved it , so I am feeling pretty good about it after all the trauma I had actually baking it , I only finished it an hour before it was picked up , I hate being that disorganised , I had planned to have it finished last night so I could work on my own stuff today . Oh well things never do go as planned , at least I always have an extra day up my sleeve usually.

 I don't have the photos sorted through yet - this looked better in person. I was glad to see her go off to her party. Not the kind of cake you want to pass on your way to a midnight snack!   She was for a horror movie enthusiast.

 

I can't imagine that looking better in person. I think it looks great and caught my eye when I was looking at the galleries new photos. 

 

I do understand what you mean though.  I am no photographer, and recently we have had so much rain and cloudy days, I can't get good natural sunlight to take good pictures. Therefore, my colors don't look true.

I am such a amateur decorator compared to all of you, but I do enjoy it. 

 

I loved this cake for the fun colors.  My favorite are the lollipops I made from MMF.

I had so much fun doing this bright and colorful birthday cake. All the accents are made from MMF. I love the lollipops and "wrapped candy". The base of each cake is MMF gumdrops and the wrapped candy.

These lollipops are for a Candy Shoppe Theme cake I am doing in two weeks. They are made with MMF and Tylose powder added. I am so happy with the way they came out.

Thanks everyone for the kind words.

How sweet I think your cake is amazing.  It is so fake-lifelike if you know what I mean.  How's that for an oxymoron.

Very cute Chelle and I hope the oven is fixed pronto.  I know what a problem oven is like.  I have been fighting with my new one and have finally discovered that when I set fan force that I do not want to set the temp 20degrees lower like you normally do or the cakes won't cook.

Niniel1 I for one would love to see your cakes on our Friday Night Forum.  It doesn't matter how new you are to it this forum is about sharing.  And you would be surprised about some things.  Whilst my cake looks spectacular (in my opinion) it is actually one of the easiest cakes I have ever made.  It would be perfectly achievable for a beginner.

Dark chocolate I love your fun colors and your lollies.  I am a sweettoothophile.

Looking forward to seeing some more pictures guys.

I won't see you for a couple of weeks as we are off to Margaret River for our anniversary.  Seven days at 2 Eco resorts with lots of fine dining.  Can't wait.

cazza1,

 

Your cake is speechless.  It is so very realistic looking, I know you must be very proud of it.  Congratulations on 30 years!!

Cazza, when I saw your cake I thought "Why in the world would she put a real picture frame on a cake?" that is AMAZING!!

 

Howsweet, when I was a teen the Evil Dead scared the pants off of me. I was afraid to take the shortcut thru some trees to my house...and if I did all of my friends would stand there and in a sing-song voice say "we're gonna get you" from the original movie. Thanks for allowing me to relive that! lol. Your cake may be one of my favorites to date!

I love coming back in here on Saturday morning and catching up on what I missed when I went to bed! 

 

Cazza, have just a lovely time on your trip! Sounds like a really wonderful way to spend time with your hubby celebrating! And I totally followed you on HOWSWEET's cake...it is perfect animation brought to cake! I'd be freaked out to have it in my house and I mean that as the biggest of compliments to HowSweet! LOL!

 

Chelle, that is adorable! I'm so sorry you are having oven issues...what a nightmare! Glad to hear you are set for the show but September 2nd???!!!! Oh my goodness I'd be in SUCH trouble. I, too, hate being so disorganized. I ran into an issue with the cake I'm working on and it's set me back about 6 hours. SIGH. It will all work out but I hate it when I hit big glitches!

 

Niniel1, please DO post photos! We were all beginners once and we still LOVE cake! So please do share any time you want.

 

DarkChocolate..my girls would be over the moon with those lolipops! They love it when MMF gets hard like candy! I made MMF Mickey Ears for a Sorcerer's hat last year and it was the first thing they wanted off the cake! LOL! Totally love the bright colors too. I need to force myself to use more bright colors in my work. I tend to stick to the naturals and not get too crazy but I think I NEED to get crazy. I have a baby shower cake coming up soon that is a Luau and I think I'm going to take a page from your book and go more bright and bold with the colors!

 

Kblicktser, hope it all works out for you! Please do post photos if you get a chance??

 

I'm off to get my morning coffee and deal with my other job as photographer. If anyone here is on Instagram my name there is shutterbugtraveler

 

I'll post photos later today once I get the cake finally done!

 

Cat

What is a Brides Ribbon pull cake? I have never heard of that before.

post #27 of 91

There are little trinkets attached to each ribbon and each means something...the bridesmaids pull the ribbons. I did this at my wedding... http://iloveswmag.com/2011/07/21/uncovering-southern-traditions-cake-pulls/

 

but mine were actually in my wedding cake

Everyone does such amazing work.

Howsweet would give me nightmares, I just love it.

Darkchocolate your lollipops look real.

Auntginn your cakes are beautiful.

After looking at everyones I almost hatred to post mine. I don't do many wedding cakes this is my first one this year. I mainly do cakes for family birthdays.
