Opening up another session of the FNCC! Everyone is welcome to share their week, share photos of their work, ask for help or provide help if you can!
This week I made a dozen jumbo cupcakes for a little girl's birthday party. I'm glad it was an easy project because I have a lot going on this weekend, and we're going away next week to my MIL's 70th surprise party.
I am working on some pink and purple gum paste flowers for my MIL's 70th birthday cake. It will be a small cake, thankfully, as I am traveling with my cake pans!
yeah, that puts it right into the impossible column! I've traveled with a frozen cake before but it was just a frozen fondant covered cake and I decorated it on site. But I have had to bake in a rental kitchen for a wedding in Hawaii once. Crazy! Never easy to have to work outside your own kitchen. Makes it much harder...not as hard as traveling with a cake and a 6 year old but...LOL!
Hi Cat and everyone,
I have travelled with a wedding cake on a plane , I have also done birthday cakes. I just let them know in advance that I am travelling with a cake and can I board the plane early to get it settled . With the wedding cake I travelled the tiers and flowers all separate and assembled on site , finishing the piping work.
Well this week I did a fortieth birthday cake for a keen fisherman,
It is a bourbon mudcake inside and smelled soooo good , I really with I could have tasted it it , but the damn thing was so level I couldn't even snick a little from the top.
This week we have a display for the Cake Club branch at a local shopping centre, so I will have a busy week running that .
Happy Caking everyone
Norasmum , that sounds like a great idea , otherwise it becomes a bit of a busman's holiday. Flowers never go to waste I find, I am just about to cobble some together to put in our branch display comp.
Cat , I am intrigued , Baking Pumpkins ? have you been making soup ?
Marian, I have to ask about the moustache , is it for Movember ? Things always look way better in my mind too , LOL.
