is called to order.
Whatcha workin' on?
It's Derby Eve in Louisville KY. You know the "fastest 2 minutes in sports." So, no cakes for me this weekend. No weddings Derby weekend as there are no caterers or halls available. But I have 5 weddings next weekend. I sort of forgot it was Mother's day . . . duh.
As I was born in KY, I have always looked forward to Derby Day.
I have no cakes this weekend, but am working on making figures for my DH's cake for next weekend. I am making two drunk guys laid out under a beer keg. I hope it turns out okay!!
I also have my dad's birthday next weekend (I should have found a DH that doesn't have a b-day the day before my dad's). I was teasing my dad about what type of cake he wanted...he said green and orange, so I'm going to try a rainbow or tye-dye cake. I love Macsmom's that she has on here.
Absolutely nothing I blocked off this weekend for my boys' b-day party. Their b-days are close together so we combine the party, but with ever 60 guests it gets a little rediculous. Kinda freaking out, they're calling for rain and there's no way they will fit in my house Heading to bed soon, the earliest in over a month, yay! I forgot it was Mother's Day next weekend as well, booked 3 weddings, so I'd better enjoy this weekend!!
I just wanna join the club but I'm not working on anything...
Been to KY once - actually twice - driving to Florida and then driving home!
I thought it was great because it was March and that morning we had left a ton of snow behind in Toronto. I was able to take my coat off there and walk around in short sleeves.
I bought a pastel green t-shirt with a horse on it.
Funny that there are no weddings because of the Derby. I think Indydebi has the same thing for the Indy 500.
Anyway, I have been working all day on cakes. I have finished a basketball cake, prom party cake, wedding shower cake, and am putting the finishing touches on a golf theme cake. Hopefully it won't be much longer.
Evenin' all! I am working on cakes/cupcakes for two weddings tomorrow. I am already tired which is bad because I am behind.
Had to make more bc, most of the cc are iced but the cake still needs to be put together.
I'm in for the long haul tonight I think and will still likely need to finish in the AM.
I'll be checking in here!
I just did 3 dozen Elmo cupcakes for my coworkers grandson's bday tomorrow. I love how they came out, but a bit disappointed he didn't want cookie monster.
Now that I'm done...time to relax.
aww the Elmos are cute.
I think half of Hollywood is in Louisville tonight and tomorrow. Paris Hilton is here!
::insert eye roll here::
I'm working on a hollywood walk of fame cake. I'm really excited about it, I think it's a cute idea. I posted a Q in another thread yesterday, but does anyone know how to make gold? I don't have any gold dust or color. I was thinking maybe yellow and a tiny bit of brown?? Any ideas?
New to the Friday night cake club but I had to share my news.
I'm so excited because I'm making cakes for the class I will be taking on Monday - here's the exciting part- taught by SUGARSHACK! We will be doing stacked books and a fish. Can't wait. (No one but fellow CCers understand why I'm excited)
Good Evening all...I just finished a "Derby Cake" going to to a derby party tomorrow....I would have posted a picture....I took one, just no card in the camera.
It was buttercream embossed with an ivy design and airbrushed red, with a big black bow around the bottom. The top of the cake simply said "Talk DERBY to me" in black scripted PME fondant letters.
I too have a light weekend, first one in my new shop...I actually have a Saturday eve off!
Hope everyone had a great week.
Elmo is very cute....but yes, I think that cookie monster would have been cuter (cause he's blue!)!!
"talk derby to me"
A Derby party in Oklahoma?
alicia...that is a cute idea for a cake! I love it
Really cute sand castle!
I'm working on a jungle theme cake for my DIL's baby shower tomorrow. Just finished my crumb coat and cleaned up a little. Almost to the fun part.
Thank you. I could have made a lot more improvements because I see a bunch of flaws. But, I figured if I had to bake my own cake, then I wasn't going to spend all night on it. LOL
Hi all. I haven't been here in several weeks but only have one cake tonight. I'm working on a transformer logo for a 5 year old. Need practice with fondant so it's taking me quite awhile to get it done.
Thank you!!! That sandcastle came out great!
This derby sounds exciting, I would love to go to one. Have fun this weekend Leahs.
I just finished a Ben 10 cake for my son's best buddies 6th birthday. My husband made the greatest alien to put on top (will post a photo tomorrow after I put the watch & alien on).
Have a John Deere 1st birthday cake for Sunday and I'm prepping for the upcoming "Q & U" wedding for my son's kindergarten class on Wednesday. They want a 3-tier wedding cake!
Hi everyone, it's strange but I've noticed around here Sundays seem to be the big cake days rather then Sat. I should be in the kitchen baking, but have spent the last couple of hours on here surfing around and using the excuse that I'm looking for ideas. Sun I have my son's b-day cake a baseball field with candy bases, dinosaur candles on the bases and a 3-d heilcopter in the middle of the field. Mon. an Edward Twilight cake for work, and a bee hive and bee cc for a work party at church. We're making hats for Fri.'s tea party. Tues. I have a Mardi Gras Mask cake for work, and then Fri. night something for a Tea Party at church. Can't decide if I want to do a hat or a tea pot for this one. I'm going to attempt to do edible image sugar cookies for this too. Good thing I have Sun. and Tues. off work. Good luck to everyone pulling a late night tonight.
That sandcastle cake was just too cute - love the idea. I'm at my regular job til 12:30 - then I get to go home and try to salvage my mom's cake. We lost our a/c at home and everything was just a mess...hoping it's better tonight now that it's a little cooler. Have fun at all the Derby/ birthday parties everyone's having...
Hi all! I'm working on another princess pillow cake. I had the same one to do last week. As I was airbrushing it, it fell to the floor. Had to start all over, I was up till 6 in the morning.
Well, this weekend I am working on one and guess what? No, it didn't fall to the floor this time. Just the last two I've made have fallen all the way in the middle I'm working on my third, have no idea what I'll do if this falls. It isn't due till Sunday.
I haven't been on here in a few days because the modem was down, but now that I am back on, things look different on the home page. Where are all the other pictures? Now I only see "popular cake pictures added today". Where are the others? How do you view them in order to make them "popular"? Anyone know?
we have a derby party every year with my whole family but it is for a demo derby instead...the "talk derby to me" is on my myspace page...lol..
i have to start my daughters cake tomorrow...supposed to do it today but got caught up in sanding and staining my diningroom floor..would of rather made the cake..
Doing the cake with the super fancy monogram I posted awhile back...kinda wishe I'd have kept that one as it was dang near perfect. Oh well....off to make some fondant snakes for it. See y'all later!
