Friday Night Cake Club (On Thursday) for 8/1/14 - Page 2

post #16 of 35

Good looking stuff, everybody! Love your cake, Cat, and cazza1 - I did recognize the bougainvillea lol! Does that mean I'm officially spending too much time here?? From me this week....Dukes of Hazard car chase, buttercream, airbrushed. Have a great weekend!

 

Dukes of Hazard car chase. 1/2 sheet buttercream iced, air brushed colors, client supplied cars

MBalsaka- yep, I toasted the marshmallow.  I have a little kitchen torch from a crème brule set I bought about ten years ago (and never used, haha) and went to town. 

 

I like the newest additions too -- the computer cake looks great and the Dukes of Hazzard cake is fun!

Finished!!

 

I am caked out now... My childhood memories cake - Rainbow Brite, Care Bears and Strawberry Shortcake. Though nobody remembers Rainbow Brite!!

If hadn't have had enough of it, I would have done a Strawberry figure too....

I do remember Rainbow Brite (Azurine for me, in French)! Oh... So many souvenirs are coming back to me.
And this yellow CareBare with the sun you've made, it was my favorite plush! Looks like you made this cake for me icon_biggrin.gif
Very nice cake

Love seeing 'boys and their toys' cakes - bet they loved this one and had a good time.

Hello everyone!  We are in Sonoma! It's just gorgeous here...taking massive amounts of photos. Today my hubby and I get to go wine tasting while our younger daughter takes her little brother and her own son swimming at the hotel pool. 

 

Anyways, just wanted to take a moment to comment upon a few things:

 

Cazza, I didn't quite have enough time to let the flags on the sticks dry on the string before the cake was due. The idea to put a hanging banner as a topper as well as the edible banner across the cake was a last minute thing. The client loved it! I do like to make everything on my cakes edible and if I had thought of it earlier would have made the sticks and banner out of fondant. Next time!

 

Ana..love the bird house...amazes me that it's cake! The 11yr old's birthday is awesome too! I'm always trying to come up with something new for Jack! That combo cake tho'...WOW! My daughter is going to LOVE this one when she wakes up...all the stuff from her childhood!

 

Freesia...YUM!!! I just wanna dive right on in!

 

CountryCakes...I wish I could tell you it's this big ol' recipe but it's not. If I had to guess on measurements it would be about 2 cups of buttercream to 1/2 cup of caramel and 2 crushed up HEATH bars. If it is too runny for your filling then tighten it up with some powdered sugar. I just sort of wing it when it comes to the size cake! But for an 8 inch what's above seems to work great. It's the hit of this summer with clients asking for it because they heard about it from someone else! LOL! I got 3 extra cakes since the original one in June all because of the filling! LOL!

 

Autumnwind...ROFL! LOVE the car in the river...omg, too funny!

 

Cara...love the Castle cake! I made one several years ago and am SO happy I haven't had to do one since. It wasn't a fun experience for me. I love your cupcakes. We call those "Dinner Party Cupcakes" here. The type you serve your guests after a fancy dinner party!

 

Cassie...what type of cake was the MIL's cake? It's so very pretty!

 

I'll check back in before Friday again. After tomorrow the rest of our vacation is at our daughters house in the Monterey area so we'll pretty much just be kicking back....I SO need that too!

Baby minion cake that I did for my sister in law - first time covering a double barrel cake! I did better than I thought I would - although I was able to hide a few spots on the bottom with the diaper icon_smile.gif also - not cake - but I carved a watermelon for the first time too! 700

The 'King of Beers' is a fun cake.  Well done!  Is it one of the edible wafer papers on the label?
