I just wanted to say what a great time we had at tcturtleshell's DOS ... it was just awesome .. we all worked with MMF, did some fondant roses, tulips, daisies and some other flowers too .. we covered a square dummy cake with MMF... we went to a cake store not far from TC's house and it was great!! I spent way too much money there too lol
Thanks so much TC for all you did to make the day, what I felt, a great success. My sister said to tell you thanks too... we need to all do it again!!
I am still so bummed that I wasn't able to make it..... I heard you all had a blast and another DOS is being considered for October????? I will walk to that one if necessary!!
I'm glad you all had such a great time and I really want your technique for the BC roses.....I heard it was so simple!
So sorry you didn't get to make it too CIndymm4 .. I would have love to have met you .... hope to meet you if we do another DOS
The BC roses on a stick is so easy to do much lighter roses (in weight) than Wilton's .. I just prefer to use that method
Can you explain how you do it.....or better yet, you should take pictures of each step and post it as a tutorial! Any ideas to make roses easier, I want to know about!!
MAYBE NTERTAYNEME YOU COULD DO A TUTORIAL ON HOW TO DO THE BC ROSES ON A STICK. I WOULD BE INTERESTED IN LEARNING THE TECHNIQUE TOO.
I'll try and type up how I do them and make a post on how it's done
Thank you so much!!!
I'm sooo jealous! I wish I could have attended the dat of sharing.
Glad you all had fun!
Hey, hey, hey!!!! I finally have time to get on CC!! I have been shopping for stuff for a wedding cake I have due Sat.
We had a wonderful time!! I'm so sorry everyone wasn't able to come! It was understandable though! WE WILL HAVE ANOTHER DOS IN THE FUTURE!! Don't know when though. If we get enough people signed up I might be able to hold it at the Fire Dept... never know! Or one of the other gals might have one. You never know!
Ntertayneme was a great teacher! I'm so glad she was there to help me out! Her BC roses on a stick were great! I will never go back to the wilton rose again. I'll have to get her to do a post on it!! Hint, hint!!
This was the first time I ever taught anything... I'm so country that my grammer is horrible!!!! I goofed up a few times!! Thank goodness by best friend was there to finish my sentences for me!!
Ntertayneme you fed my dog too much!!! I thought I told you to take him home w/ you,
The dog, DH & kids didn't leave town because DH was sick w/ allergies. Jeff didn't bring home any snakes or gaters!! Everyone was happy w/ that!!
We learned fondant roses, tulips (small & large), daisies, narcisis. BC roses on a stick. MMF, thanks Misdawn!!! I love that stuff!!!!! Several different techniques. Color flow. We had so much fun that we ran out of time for a few things!!! I didn't get to show the tuxedo strawberries, royal icing or FBCT or Gel transfers. We went on a field trip (that's what Misdawn called it, ) to my friends Cake Supply Store. Everyone loved it!!! Playing w/ the MMF was my favorite part!!!!! Of course the BC roses on a stick!! Meeting & putting faces to friends I've met on CC was awsome!!!
I think Ntertayneme might put the pics she took on her website. Did you do that yet? Don't show me if I look goofy!! Just picking!! I wished Jackie would let us put the pics on CC but I understand the rules.
We had so much food!!!! Yummy!!!!!! I had friends over last night & they helped us eat all the food!! I don't know what we would have done w/ all that food!!
SPECIAL THANKS TO.....
Ntertayneme for helping me w/ the food & teaching!!!! Thanks to Misdawn for helping me get a few things ready before eveyone arrived!!!! Thanks to Boo-Boo for helping me w/ everything!!!! Thanks to CIndy for helping me w/ the before stuff!! It was so nice to meet ya'll!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If I forgot anything I'll be back to post it!!!
Ntertayneme & Misdawn you can add to this!!!
You are wonderful people!!!!!!!

YOU CAN HAVE JAKE!! And that darn kitten Jeff brought home!!!! And I can't forget Mandy's cat!!! Take em' all!!!! But leave my DH!! Can't get rid of him
I went to the store today!! Jean & Kaye were so delighted to have you all come in! They were happy w/ the extra business too!! I'll take you anytime!! Jean helped me w/ making a few decisions fo the 2 cakes I have coming up. She also gave me some free stuff!!! That's always nice!!
Oh.......... I'm adorable, I'm adorable!!! You're too sweet!!!!!
I forgot.... you left a few things behind..... you left your apron, your rose tool, wooden spatula, 1 bag, tip & coupler & your bucket of crisco. I'm going to mail you everything but the crisco! Weighs too much It might not be till next week though. I'll be busy w/ the wedding cake this week.
Thanks for leaving the tea cakes!! YUMMY!!!! We love them!!!!!!
I finally looked at you're website. It looks great!! You forgot to teach me how to do one!!
Wait till you see the cake I've got lined up for Aug 27th!! I'm going to cover it w/ MMF!!!!!!!!!!! Yea!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm excited w/ this one!!
Ok... I've got a lot of gallery pics to catch up on so I better go! TTYL, ~T~
Your cakes look great, I was wondering How did you get the "Tina's Cakes" on them? I love your basket weave. The Chocolates making me Hungryyyyyy,,, hehehe
Okay, now, I'm waiting for someone to post pics of the rose on a stick! Funny, that reminds me of the Food Network "Unwrapped" series they are always having. Lastnight they touched on some carnival food items and they were mostly on a stick! I love that show!! So, anyway, how 'bout some instructions here for those of us who couldn't join you guys this past weekend?! Come on, now, don't hold back! I need to know the step-by-step instructions for the MMF and now the rose on a stick! I haven't met any of you, but I love you guys. You all make my day. Tarina
Hey Tina..I'd take Jake anyday! He's too cute and really sweet! I hope we didn't make him too sick. Poor baby! I hope your MMF cake turns out well (I'm sure it will!) Can't wait to see pictures. We definitely have to do another DOS again! I had a blast.
I am so glad I learned the rose on a stick trick. I never knew how to make roses before last weekend. I was so excited I went home and made my boyfriend a red velvet cake (his favorite)just so I could practice my roses!
And the next time I'm in Shreveport I will definitely bring more cash with me so I can splurge at Cake Creation Supplies!
Thanks for the compliment SweetCreations. I just PM'd you on how to add your name to a pic~
The roses on a stick are sooo easy! I'm sure ntertayneme will make a post about them soon. I could tell you how to do them in a PM if you'd like.
Jake wasn't sick. He just missed everyone when you all left! No worries~
I really believe you have a nack for decorating Misdawn!!! You did great!! I'm so proud that we could teach you all the stuff we did. Sorry we didn't get to everything. Us ladies talk too much huh?
We did have a great time didn't we! Next time you're in town give me a call! We can get together & have lunch or a drink (non-alcoholic) somewhere.
By the way... Jean & Kay at my cake store.. are going to New Orleans for the ICES convention!!! They invited me to come along!!!!! But I can't!!!! I am taking that bus driving course those days!! I am sooooooo upset I can't go!!!!!
Next year I'm going for sure!!!!
Thanks for the compliment tc! And thanks for taking the time to teach me everything - I hope I didn't keep anyone else from learning. Everyone else knew a lot more than me.
By the way, what is ICES?
I would love to know how to do the roses on a stick too. Could you PM me when you get a chance? I know you said you had a cake to do for this weekend. Goodluck and thanks. Sounds like you all had a great time at the DOS.
All this talk is making me want to do a DOS here in IL! I can't wait to see the rose tutorial. Also, I'd love to see pics/instructions on the tulips that were mentioned. They're one of my favorite flowers! ntertayn, please post the link to your instructions here when you get a chance.
Misdawn & me just posted how to do the roses on a stick. It's in General under Roses on a stick. Take a look. If you have any more questions just ask we'll try to help you~
I'm sorry I didn't get back to this post. I have been so busy doing cakes & doing consulations & the Fire Dept that I haven't had time to do anything... even sleep!
Mjmil7, the cakes I was working on turned out very nice! I will post them as soon as I get my scanner fixed.
Sorry I didn't get around to doing this... I've been incredibly busy and haven't had time... I apologize... I will also post this but I want to take pictures and do a tutorial type of guide as I'm a visual person as many others on here care also... I promise to try and get this up as soon as I can!!
You can do it Ntertayneme!!! I know you can! I can't wait to see it!! You did a great job teaching it at the DOS!!!
