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 they can! Hope to see lots of photos this week!
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!
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!
Rosie: Love the display on the cupcakes! SO cute! Love the horse cut out too..is that a cookie cutter or machine cut or???
SweetShop: Adorable baby shower cake! VERY clean! Love the hockey cake too. Jersey's always take a lot more work than I think they will! LOL!
Thank you very much both of you :)
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.:)
