Friday Night Cake Club for 1/31/14 - Page 2

post #16 of 42

Hi Everyone! I'm finally done with my order. And I'm exhausted! This is the first order I have done with my hand out of the cast and man, it wasn't easy. Glad I don't have a full fondant cake for two more weeks! I can't take photos of the cupcakes yet because they have picks for them and I can't place those till the party tomorrow but I did take a cell phone photo of the smash cake:

 

 

I'll take more at the party so you can see how the whole set up looks. Each cupcake for the "little man" side has a mustache pick in it and each "little lady" cupcake has hot pink heart confetti and a pink bow pick in it. Can't wait to share this party with you all even if the focus for this one isn't the cakes.

Good job of piping.  Even with full use of both my hands I can't pipe a straight line to save my life.  There's a reason most of my cakes are fondant, and the non-fondant ones are mostly monkey iced.  LOL  :oops:

Leilo, your strawberry cake is very cute! Are you having fun with the classes? I sat in with one that my daughter was taking and it seemed like you learn a lot of stuff very quickly! How cool!

 

SPC, your groundhog cake is very very cute! Love all the adorable details! And I'm always partial to "under the sea" cakes...I'm such a beach baby! LOL! (Oh, and you are so right...photographing purple is awful!!!)

 

tdove...this year I'm so very happy that I had a break in January. Yes, orders are heating right up again for me too. As for hanging out at the event..this is why I offer to stay and cut the cake...LOL! No one else wants to do it!

 

Cakeyou...love the doll. I had not done one for years and then last August I did one for my granddaughter and realized how much I love them! It has to do with making the clothing for them...SO much fun! Your dress is simply lovely! As for getting in over your head after thinking it's so easy??? I think we ALL do that. With each major cake, especially wedding cakes, I wonder why I was so excited to do it...it's like my common sense leaves my body and says "sure, go for it..easy stuff!" and then returns the day before and asks me what the HELL was I thinking?! LOL! But the payoff is the kids/clients faces when they see the cake. Always wonderful. Try Americolor for the purple next time. It holds it's color much better than wilton does.

 

Sassy! Such cute cupcakes! I love the swirl frosting! I so wanted to do that for this order but the mom didn't like the idea of two toned icing...I think it looks SO cool!

 

How much fun to see what you have all done this week!

Wow, I love all of your piping! Like cakeyou, I can't pipe so everything is sugarpaste icon_wink.gif
This is my contribution this week - first paid order since getting my kitchen approved! It's nice, but nerve wracking - for family and friends when they're not payin you think, well... It's fine, you get what you're given!! But when you have a design agreed and have to deviate slightly..... Hope my customer likes it!
I could do with your advice on this one. The edges of the cake a slightly rounder than I would have liked them. The reason was the pond - I had to put the blue icing on first then cover with green so that there was a "step" up to the grass, and not double fondant iyswim. But it was really hard to cut it nearly round the edges and it went in too far in some places, giving it a rounded edge.
Is there a better way if doing that??
Here's the pic 400

Otherwise it came out as I had imagined it icon_smile.gif

And used my clickstix for the first time - what a revelation!!!! I love my tappits, but HOW much time did I save??!
Have a great weekend everyone x

Your sculpted figures are very cute.  I especially like the frog.

I'm not even sure how you accomplished this with your hand. When I get minor craps I can't do anything, you're amazing! I'm sure you are taking it easy, but just in case. Take care and I hope you get back to full capacity very soon!

Here are the pictures form this week's cakes. The 1st was supposed to be a nerdy 40th birthday cake. However, 2 weeks before the 4-year old son and his mom called me to ask if I could some how incorporate Buzz and Woody in the design. It was a stretch, but here it goes, the Aliens making their "40" in binary while Buzz and Woody attempt to hang a 40th Birthday sign. 

 

 

Next up are cupcakes for a bird house making craft party. 

 

 

 

Finally, a plain birthday cake, my piping skills are improving, but I still need more practice. Using the parchment bag helped tremendously.

Wow the cakes/ cupcakes are fabulous!! Really enjoy looking at everyone's work after the week is over.
So I made a few cupcakes and thought I'd try a two tone buttercream for the first time, here's how it turned out

tdove, it was a challenge, that is for sure! Here is a photo of the cake table. I'll post more on my blog on Tuesday so you guys can see the whole party! The theme was little Lady (she was turning 3) and little Man (he turned 1) So his had mustache picks and hers had pink bow picks.

Love how you incorporated Toy Story into your cake!! Really adorable!

Hello all, I'm a little late.  Busy busy weekend after not having any cake orders for a few weeks.  I have been helping a friend who lost her designer, so even tho I am decorating cake I don't really count that as my own work.

 

Nice roses leilosssweetshop

SPCOhio - great work on the Ground Hogs Day cake.  Love the little critter.  Cute guppies cake

 

Cakeyouverymuch, Love your barbie cake, I'm trying to finish off a model one for pics but can't seem to finish. Only have the skirt part up to a first coating. lol
