Hi everyone,

 

Just been working on party plans this week...getting things ordered and sending out the invitations for clients. Not a thing baked this week except a pizza! How's it going for everyone here?

Phew! I had a hum0dinger of a cake due today.  It was a group of 10 women who have been friends since college and needed a cake to help celebrate their Girls' Weekend - This was the design I came up with: Bottom tier reflects their college days (Rhodes College, Willford Hall dorms, a few college bars/hangouts & sororities), the top reflects what the 10 women will be doing for the weekend...A group of 10 college friends, who called themselves "The Quint" were getting together for a Girls' Weekend and needed a cake to celebrate. The bottom tier reflects different parts of their college days - the brick was from the dorms they lived in at Rhodes, their sororities were represented as well as their old bars/hangouts. The top tier depicts the plan for the weekend - relaxing!

I'd like some of that discombobulated mind creativity sent my way.

It's an Ab Fab ladies-day-out cake fit for a Queen.:king:

Ha! I love the spa ladies!! I did my first 3D carving this week. My friend found this yellow dinosaur online and then I came here to do search for yellow dinosaurs and found another caker who had executed the same design. She offered some helpful comments so my thanks to her for helping me with this first milestone! (Her email is no longer good, but i need to PM her here for a proper thanks.). http://cakecentral.com/g/i/3165176/a/3440226/my-friend-asked-me-to-recreate-a-yellow-dinosaur-cake-she-found-online-i-dont-know-who-the-original-artist-was-but-another-caker-posted-her-rendition-of-it-here-a-few-years-ago-along-with-some-valuable-comments-about-how-she-made-it-since-this/

Wow!  No wonder you're exhausted.  A brilliant design.

I've been wanting to do a "What the Bride Wants" and "What The Groom  Wants" , cake side by side for an upcoming show and tonight I got the grooms part done.  I found a cool stand at a larger Massachusetts antiques fair.  On top is the groom with a rifle, Field and Stream sign in the background, trusty dog by his side.  Standing on a camo cake that says She's Mine.  I decorated each fake cake in camo fabric.  I'm using it at the wedding show as an attention getter.  This should do the trick.  Next to it will be a white cake decorated in rhinestone bands .........all girly and fluffy.  :-)  Love this time of year...............play time.

Wow what cool cakes and such creativity.  I have no cake orders this week or next up.  Even if I wanted to next week, I can't because I'm having major dental work done on friday.  Ouch!  It hurts just thinking out it.  I'm one of those dental chickens.  I will be working on another faux cake between now and next week.  I have a beautiful carriage cake base and want a photo shoot of it.  So obviously I need a cake. lol  Also will be working on my valentines day orders with lots of my lollipops.

SPCOhio...your yellow dino is adorable! Such a happy looking guy!

 

I usually do demo's this time of year too but I guess I'm happy that I can't work in cake yet since I've been so busy with the party planning part of the biz. That's why it's so much fun to come here and see all that you guys are doing...even if they are mostly demo's this time of year...still fun to look at all of your wonderful work!

Hey ladies! @dukeswalkeryour cake looks amazing! Cant wait until im at that level of my cake decorating! @SPCOhioyour 3d dinosaur is soooo cute! @DeniseNH that grooms cake is awesome! It will surely grab attention at the wedding show!

This week, after having my first Wilton class, I decide to exercise the technique I learned in butter cream and I made a football cake! It took a while and my cake shape was a little off and the lines of the football were a little crooked. Otherwise, I was pretty darn proud of myself at how it came out! 400

leilossweetshop:  Good for you......you should be proud of yourself.  It's going to progress one yard at a time until  you reach your own goal line and Touchdown!!:D

Cheers,
