Thanks :)   She turned out really well...considering I didn`t have much patience for dealing with gumpaste.

 

I managed to get off my butt and throw that cake together.  Its coated in condensation, WAH!   My last cake a couple of weeks ago did the same thing.   This one I took the time to muck around with an ombre effect...its not looking so ombre now.   Its super humid where I live but usually in summer i don`t have to bother to run a dehumidifier, I guess I do now.   Here's hoping I wake up to find a cake and not a teal puddle of goo.   Sounds appetizing doesn`t it?

Ruthiepearl, I just love how ambitious you've been!  It's worked so well.  A gorgeous cake.

 

I'm currently working on a cake for tomorrow for a friend's 80th birthday.  It is a surprise cake as she is probably the most humble person you could meet and would have refused if she's been told :-)

 

I'm trying out sugar roses for the first time, but I'm having a lot of problems with them falling off the wire with the weight of the additional petals.  I made the centres by bending over a bit of wire, dipping it in egg whites and then pushing that into a teardrop of fondant, then sort of twisting the bottom bit round the wire and smoothing it down.  I did them on Sunday night, but they are just straight fondant as I don't have gumpaste/tylose powder.  Is that the problem?

 

I'm also doing my first three tier cake (just small - an 8/6/4) so I hope that will work out.  I'm using ganache instead of buttercream for a trial, and so far really love it.

 

I'll post pictures when I'm done, but I'm really pleased as I don't often get the chance to do more old-fashioned style cakes.

I made this Adventure Time cake for my son's 5th birthday. I messed up pretty badly with placing the toppers (should have thought it out more), but he's happy with it. It's a vast improvement on the first cake I ever made for his 3rd birthday lol

Lizzy I love cakes like that!

AZcouture why are you annoyed? Hope it wasn't my message, if it was please please stay.

 

All the work everyone is doing is so fun to watch. Also making a tiara with an extruder I'm assuming you just used gumpaste mix and let it dry? How did you attach the pieces Royal Icing???

Lol,, nooooo, just poking fun at another thread where someone is in a tizzy for no good reason at all, and are offended and annoyed.

Barbie is really stylin in her zebra dress! Love the mermaid. I hope I have the talent and patience to do figures like that someday. The same with the butterflies! Brettley, I love the color combos of that top cake and my granddaughter would be thrilled by that crown. When she is not being a firebreathing dragon, she is a princess. lol

 

I am still waiting on color decisions for my Diva mask. I have added some Swarovski crystals to it so far and am anxious to get to work on it. Not much else in the way of decorating this week. Just a simple carrot cake and some swirl cupcakes.

 

Very exciting...I got an order for an 18" stand from a very well known client. It's being made now. I can't wait to get pics of it with her cakes. Then I can really work on my website and advertising. I also went back to my metal smith with an updated design for my leveler. Fingers crossed that this one will be usable with 3 blades at time...

 

31 days until I am out of a job and start Baking/Pastry school so I'm hoping these enterprises will keep food on my table! lol

Ooh, I love the AT cake!

 

 

My cake had a little meltdown.   Woke up to puddles in the border, and BIG droplets on the sides and top.   I tried to clean it up but it was just making a mess of the smooth frosting.   I really need to figure out the culprit, I`m mortified it keeps happening to me.   The topper also developed a wicked lean, I think that I didn`t use enough armature to account for the 6 ounces of hair.  Also wanted more height so I switched from 8 to 6, and the topper looks uh...monumental.

Snow White Cake with Matching apple cupcakes

This is an Icing Smiles cake-Snow White and some apple cupcakes. I, again!, had a humid, warm, rainy day to try to work with fondant, so it is shiny from condensation. But at least it doesn't go into droplets or anything, and it dries by the time I deliver.

Well I just got in my order of cake dummies and just got an order for a shoe & a purse for Tuesday. Looks like I'm gonna be busy

Oh.. I love the whole mermaid cake, and erica you could never tell that was the problem.  Lots of people wet the fondant to get that shiny look.  It's still a very nice looking cake.  I'm sure that little girl is going to be one happy lil girl.

Yes I agree I wish I had that wet look erica!

Such pretty cakes they all are turning out so well.

 

Azcouture- I seem to always miss those threads...I guess what ever the original topic is I just am not interested in so I don't see em.

There are a few of those on here.
