Friday Night Cake Club for 10/11/13 - Page 2

post #16 of 19
Everyone's cakes look great! I had a large sugar cookie order this weekend, for a long-time customer who uses me for all her family events. She wanted some kind of fall themed cookie, and left it up to me. I made pumpkin spice flavored sugar cookies (swap out 1/3 do the white sugar for brown, and add 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice to your sugar cookie recipe) and topped them with modeling chocolate cut-outs. You can roll out modeling chocolate and cut it with the same cookie cutter, and when the cookies come out of the oven, pop the modeling chocolate cut outs on while they're still hot. The chocolate melts a bit, and adheres to the cookie. You can also add other decorations to it at this point. The modeling chocolate re solidifies once it's cool, and then I made the curved lines using the rim of a cup, and piped on the leaves and vines with royal icing. They're soft and delicious, and taste just like pumpkin pie!

About 24 hours late, but:

Submitted for your amusement, something I threw together out of odds and ends, for my parents' 56th anniversary.

56th Anniversary

The naked section at the bottom is, as usual, in deference to my dad wanting to avoid frosting.

DH "Swiss Chocolate" mix, with DH canned frosting, a spare edible print of a rose (leftover from my mother's birthday cake), and homemade cold process BC for the "56."

As a companion piece, I made myself a kitchen cake, 8x8, from 2/3 of a DH "Classic White" mix, frosted with cold process BC (the same batch used for the "56"), much the same as I did on my mother's birthday.

NYA, I misread before.  The lace on the cupcakes is made with sugarveil in a sugarveil mould.  If you go to their website you will see what they have available.  You can buy sugarveil moulds in lots of places.

Cat..my son would love the card table. I love the board on the autumn cake and the cupcakes are lovely. I want to try Sugarveil and buy some MagicLine pans when my budget allows. Things have been really tightsince retiring and orders are very slow! I quoted a 3 tier peacock cake today. Pray that I get the order so I can buy groceries! lol I made a cake to take in for my class at school. I practiced fondant paneling techniques but still need a lot more practice. I had to pipe over the seams.
