What's up? Watcha workin' on?
I see no one started the thread in Cat's absence so I thought I'd start us off. Better late than never, right?
What's going on tonight?
I'm finishing up a carved cake of the Norfolk State Spartans for a tailgate tomorrow. All I have left is the board lettering. However, a storm just moved through and my fondant is now way too soft to work with. The letters are cut via my Cricut and are sitting in the oven with the light on to harden.
Earlier tonight the hubs, daughter, and I made vegetarian tacos and PBJ roll-ups for the tailgate. 50 tacos and 130 roll-ups. Busy weekend ahead!
a light week for me , no cakes . I did my usual teaching . A lot of administration work for our cake decorating branch ( I am the Secretary ) We have just adopted a new constitution so I had lots of forms to fill out and get signed .
I did bake two fruitcakes and soaked fruit for about 10 more.
Cheatize , I am curious, what is a tailgate? I assume the Spartans are some sort of sports team.
PBJ -Peanut butter and Jelly ?
A tailgate is when people get together to eat food and hang out before a game. It's held in a parking lot or grassy area. The one I attend feeds the Ohio University Marching 110 (band)- over 240 band members.
Yes, the Spartans are a sports team- specifically, American football. They are the opposing team this week and it's traditional for me to make a cake for the tailgate. It always includes a Rice Krispy Treat component. A band member removes it, and about 20 or so members sit in a circle, take a bite, and pass it around. It's kind of weird. lol
You're right again- PBJ is peanut butter and jelly. I smear them on a tortilla, sprinkle on strawberries, bananas, and granola; and roll up the tortilla.
Where do you teach?
The board lettering is done. I just have to box it up for transport, take a shower, and get a few hours of sleep before traveling 2 hours to the game. Ahh, Fall in America! lol
Cool Cheatize , that explains alot to this Aussie Girl
The rollups sound yum.
I teach cake decorating in my home. I love getting up and going to work in my Dining room. I specialise in sugar flowers , but also do the basics of covering , basic piping , modelling , bas relief etc. I do small classes of no more than three at a time.
I also teach a course at the local High School once a year , and I am workshop co ordinator at our local cake decorating branch , which means I run workshops once a month there too. Keeps me off the streets and from going stark raving mad with boredom .
I finished my "Disco Ball Lookin'" Wedding cake dummy, and did a peacock Barbie cake that you unfortunately have to lay on your side to look at. Over 6 hours of cake decorating fun!
