Hi everyone,

 

Still off on break. I don't have a client cake till the 12th so I've plenty of time on my hands. This week I made Strawberry Shortcakes with lemon cake, fresh strawberries and freshly whipped cream. It was a hit with our little dinner party crowd. I'm doing mini cakes for my blog and wanted to show what you can do with small rounds of cake. My family is ever so happy to eat the fruits of my labor! LOL!  Anyways, here's the photo I took:

 

 

And, yes, it was totally yummy! LOL!

 

Hope to see lots of photos this week! I'm having a bit of cake withdrawl since I'm not really working right now. After such a busy summer it's hard to just suddenly have nothing going on!

YUM Cat.

 

I made a sandwich this week with help from AZ.  It was hubbies birthday and he is a salad sandwich freak. They would probably be his favorite thing in the world to eat.  It was probably the quickest and easiest cake I have ever made but looks great anyway.  He laughed and said he hadn't thought I was making him a cake.  When I replied that I had told him I was, he said that I usually puddle all week when I make a cake and as I hadn't done anything he presumed that I couldn't be bothered.  He took it back to work after lunch and said they all took photos of it and then sms d them to friends, claiming that they had made it!  I should add in here that most of them probably could not even cook a cake.

Sandwich cake for a salad sandwich addict's birthday.


The 'Rye' bread banana cake was from Rose Levy Berambaum's Cake Bible, with about a cup of chopped walnuts added and was absolutely delicious.

Hello everyone. I might share a pick of my cake disaster but I did a red velvet cake this week for a barbie cake. I posted more about it in the cake disaster forum.

That looks totally AWESOME! I love how the bread looks like real bread! Seriously a great illusion! I simply adore cakes that don't look like they could be cake! LOL!

Hi all! I didn't work this week... Had an Aunt who lived out of town who passed this week. She's in a better place. But I just wanted to share a cake I'm really proud of. I am new to fondant. Literally I've been working with it only a month. It's a pearl themed cake for a girl named Sophia 400

Well nothing as good as the ones above! But did this for my sister in laws birthday. Brief was giant cupcake with white and pink flowers and white and pink butterflies with glitter...
I didn't mix the flower colours as I didn't think it'd look as nice (this is the bonus of doing free cakes... Certain amount of free reign!).
Caused me a lot of stress. The last time I did a cupcake the roses fell off so I tried another buttercream recipe which ended up way drier than the last one so kept adding milk until it was right. Woke up this morning to no fallen roses so I'm happy now!
My letters are jaggedy, can't get them right! And would like to get more grooves on the base but otherwise pleased considering the stress it was!

Love all of the cakes I woke up to this morning! 

 

Morgan, love the cake...do you use a mold for the pearls or are those all handrolled? I love that it's not all one color too! So sorry to hear about your Aunt. Sometimes just being with family to say goodbye and talk about the person's life is a blessing in itself, sad, but a blessing.

 

Miss, the pumpkin cake sounds SO yummy. I'm a pumpkin freak (November is known as Pumpkin Month in our house) so that one sounds like it's right up my alley!LOL!

 

Reen, wow, birthday cake AND shower cake for the same cousin? She's one spoiled girl! LOL! The diaper bag looks just wonderful.

 

Ana, I think your rose and butterfly cake is just wonderful. I know that photography hides what you see in person but it looks fairly perfect to me. But I also know that we are SO hard on ourselves seeing every little imperfection and wanting it to be perfect. Rest assured that, to the rest of us, it does look perfect!
