Friday Night Cake Club for 1/10/14 - Page 2

post #16 of 20

Hi Guys, great cakes.  Denise I think your cake is spectacular.  It is sooo different.

leilossweetshop  stick with it.  You have the right attitude to do well.

 

I don't seem to be getting anywhere.  Started some practice roses at new year but we seem to be rolling from one family crisis to another.  Thought I would get some more petals on today but when I finally got a quiet moment with my mind in the right place the temperature had shot up to 47C so I gave up after 3.  Made a passsionfruit mud cake with the recipe that Chelle gave me and it smelt divine while it was cooking.  Will ganache it tomorrow if the temp drops enough for the ganache to set overnight.  Then not sure what I will do but I will try and decorate it somehow.  I need SOME sanity in my life.

 

How are those fingers going Kat.  I hope they are getting better.

As always...it's fun to come in on Saturday morning and see what you guys posted while I was sleeping! 

 

Leilo! Perfect for this week of Playoffs! Did you have fun in class? 

 

MB...your reply to Leilo had me rolling this morning! LOL! And I love your NYE cake..I never would have thought of Pink but it's just beautiful! I have to make sure to push myself out of the standard envelope and you guys keep reminding me to do so!

 

Cazza...man you guys are BROILING down there! UGH. I can't stand heat. I'm a "moderate" girl right down the line. Where I live in California the summers are way too hot for me. We are hoping to move by the sea once our son is done with middle school...not this summer but next. BUT, having said that, I'm thankful for air conditioning...I'm gathering you don't have it?

 

On the fingers front...the bone has healed but I have all sorts of nerve damage that will be around for several months to come. I'm just dealing with it. I move to a compression bandage this week which will get me use to moving the fingers again but still protect it. Fortunately party planning is sucking away my time so I'm keeping busy, just not with cakes yet. You guys will see my first cake week after next because we have a little family celebration. Then the client cakes begin. 

 

Today I'm making tamales for the first time ever! LOL! Yup...I'm crazy like that. My younger daughter and my niece are coming over and we are going to give it a try! I get to see our grandson in just under an hour from now and am always giddy whenever one of the grandkids comes to visit! It's supposed to rain today (and I really hope it does...we need rain very badly) so perfect weather for a "hang out at home" day.

 

Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!

 

Cat

Cat: very happy to bring a smile to someone.  Thanks on the pink thing but I only make cakes for my own pleasure and entertainment.  So I can do any silly goofball stuff that I want as I'm not filling orders for other peoples dreams

 

We all start........at the beginning........sounds silly to say that. But I like coaches who give high scores for enthusiasm tempered with training, education, correction, direction, & accurate, factual, honest feedback.   This allows us to move forward and achieve great things.

 

Because practice does not make perfect, Practice makes Permanent.  So Practice something new as perfectly as you can. It becomes habit, then you suddenly have perfect permanent habits.

 

(maybe someday when I can stack a cake I'll try to sell them - but haven't even come close to trying that yet.) :roll: 

cheers

Hi Cat, yes I do have airconditioning but I rarely ever turn it on.  I have a very big house and there is only one large vent in the family room so it does not really reach down to the cake room and I could not be bothered shifting stuff.  My house was designed by an architect to live in so he put a lot of thought in to things.  If I close the house up (Curtains etc) in the morning it will stay at about 28C inside.  I then throw all the windows open when the afternoon sea breeze comes in (I live across the road from the beach) and that cools things back down again.  We do not get a lot of days like yesterday where the wind continues to come from the east rather than switching around to the South.
