Hi everyone,

 

I've been down with bronchitis the past two weeks. The party went quite well but I'm prone to bronchitis and felt it coming on the morning of the party. By Monday I was in bed...for a week. This week hasn't been too much different but I finally turned the corner for better and am finally feeling like a normal person. One who gets very tired very quickly but still! I'll take it! LOL! 

 

Needless to say there's been no baking of any sort going on here. I have a small birthday cake for Sunday but that's really it. The real happening here is little league is starting up so we've been busy with practice and such. I'm team mom this year since, with my hand, I have a very light Spring season this year. Kids got their jersey's today and our first real game is Monday! 

 

Hope everyone is doing well and if you have been under the weather that life is treating you a bit better now!

Hi everyone, I'm new to cc and fancy cake making (and so many things actually, recently dissolved a 10 year common law marriage and about to give a new but crappy house mate the boot... lots of change all at once) and so far have largely been a lurker on cc but FNCC is too excellent for me to resist😜

Last weekend I had a birthday cake to do for a rather eccentric gal so arranged that instead of her 'ordering' a specific b-day cake she instead pay ingredients only for. 3 layer topsy turvy which I need to practice for a wedding coming up in April. It was agreed and I set to work creating my test run of the very specific wedding cake layers. Well, life being life like and all and the universe with its quarkie sense of humor and Murphy etc I ended up "living in interesting times" as they say.

I'll have to write up the details from a real computer because doing it on my phone will be too crazy. Ultimately she got a way bigger cake than intended that looks nothing like the wedding cake due in April and I have 8 cups of soupy soft mascarpone, cream cheese and heavy whipping cream frosting fail in my fridge to reimagine into something that works. The photo is of the b-day cake glazed and awaiting frosting. It was delivered just before I had to run off to work as a bouncer at big night club... a little bit surreal but more in that later from a keyboard.

Ana, thank you...it's been something else. Between my hand and this illness I, literally, have not been myself in 4 months. I'm so DONE! I'm a really lousy patient too...my poor hubby!  The only upside with this illness is that I've lost 11 pounds the past two weeks! Amazing how easy it is to diet when food sounds horrid to you! LOL! Silver lining!

 

 

Edie! Sounds life is being anything BUT fair to you these days! That is a whole lot of change to be happening in a short span of time. Hope things go well with the roommate change over and you find a great one to replace her. 

 

It doesn't say where you are from but I'm guessing you are not American by the way you "glazed the cake before frosting". So I'm dying of curiosity about what you did glaze it with? Can't wait to see the one in April now! 

 

My summer season is just beginning to book up and it's mostly children's birthday cakes! Very odd indeed! Usually I have a few weddings, a few showers (bridal and baby) and then a kid's cake or two but this summer I have 6 booked already! SIX! It kinda amazes me that people are now paying that kind of money for a birthday cake. Not that I'm not happy for the money just surprised!

 

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! We are celebrating our son's "Gotcha Day". That is the day when we all stood in court as a family and the judge finalized his adoption 12 years ago. We had him from birth...literally, he was born into my hands...but the paperwork takes awhile so he was 10 mos old before it was finalized. Anyways, we do a small celebration each year. Today it's going to go see the Lego Movie and then out to his favorite restaurant for lunch. My first real outing in two weeks and I'm thrilled! LOL!

Cat, so sorry you still haven't been feeling well, but glad that you seem to be on the mend.  Take care and enjoy your day!

Sorry to hear you have been ill Cat, our family is getting over the same thing. This cake was for a young lady visiting FL for a horse riding event, her mom called me from Ohio and asked me to surprise her at the event with the cake. The cupcakes were for a 7 year old's birthday.

Thanks ladies, everyone has some beautiful cakes this week.

The horse was a clip art that I printed out after adjusting the size and cut out of fondant with a knife.

 

You are more than welcome to use the cupcake idea! I have been doing them that way for awhile. It adds a little "sophistication" to the serving.:):smile:

Veronica- I love the fish cake!

I noticed you live in Elijay- my folks had some property up there for years, it is a lovely place!
