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 you can!
This week I've been baking pumpkins but no cakes! We are off on vacation tomorrow morning but I think I will still be able to log in next Friday too!
Hope to see lots of cakes tonight!
This week I made a dozen jumbo cupcakes for a little girl's birthday party. I'm glad it was an easy project because I have a lot going on this weekend, and we're going away next week to my MIL's 70th surprise party.
I am working on some pink and purple gum paste flowers for my MIL's 70th birthday cake. It will be a small cake, thankfully, as I am traveling with my cake pans!
So you are cooking there for the 70th b'day cake? That is a challenge! Hope to see photos of how it turns out!
Yes, will be baking the cake at my SIL's house. She likes to learn about cakes and the thought of carrying a cake on the plane with my 6-year old was frightening…
yeah, that puts it right into the impossible column! I've traveled with a frozen cake before but it was just a frozen fondant covered cake and I decorated it on site. But I have had to bake in a rental kitchen for a wedding in Hawaii once. Crazy! Never easy to have to work outside your own kitchen. Makes it much harder...not as hard as traveling with a cake and a 6 year old but...LOL!
AI made this cake Friday for my niece's birthday. It looked way better in my mind then it does here. She loved it.
Hi Cat and everyone,
I have travelled with a wedding cake on a plane , I have also done birthday cakes. I just let them know in advance that I am travelling with a cake and can I board the plane early to get it settled . With the wedding cake I travelled the tiers and flowers all separate and assembled on site , finishing the piping work.
Well this week I did a fortieth birthday cake for a keen fisherman,
It is a bourbon mudcake inside and smelled soooo good , I really with I could have tasted it it , but the damn thing was so level I couldn't even snick a little from the top.
This week we have a display for the Cake Club branch at a local shopping centre, so I will have a busy week running that .
Happy Caking everyone
Happy to say that we decided to just buy a cake, because SIL wants me to relax while in San Diego. That was fine by me, for sure, as I was cramming to get the gum paste flowers done.
I think I will use the flowers on a different cake.
Norasmum , that sounds like a great idea , otherwise it becomes a bit of a busman's holiday. Flowers never go to waste I find, I am just about to cobble some together to put in our branch display comp.
Cat , I am intrigued , Baking Pumpkins ? have you been making soup ?
Marian, I have to ask about the moustache , is it for Movember ? Things always look way better in my mind too , LOL.
