Starting up a bit late tonight because I was working photographing a Chef at a Museum dinner. It's so much fun to see them create the edible art in front of me. Oh, and I get fed too!! Ah-mazing food!

Anyways, here is my cake this week. It's a pumpkin spice cake with a buttercream filling and MMF cover. Each month I make a dessert for the staff birthdays and this month there were two of my friends. One doesn't like cake but loves cookies so I made a whole bunch of cookies for him. The other is a fellow Harry Potter fan so a Golden Snitch was her birthday cake!

BEAUTIFUL!  I love the golden snitch cake, I'm a huge Harry Potter fan as well. These were two weeks ago before I know about the FNCC posts but I made these for my daughter's 13th birthday. Friday Night Cake Club For 9/22/17

@catlharper ‍ Thanks! They were fun and she LOVED them but man was that Griffindor crimson a pain to get. I swear I went through an entire small tub of burgundy gel and the remnants of my red adding black and brown to get it darker. I don't think I could ever duplicate that color if I tried!

All of these cakes are so beautiful! I'm still at the amateur stage but I'm very proud of the birthday cake I made for my daughter.  It took forever to cut and press all of the ruffles but she was happy so that's all that matters. : ) Friday Night Cake Club For 9/22/17Friday Night Cake Club For 9/22/17

CupCake.Goddess  Ruffles are harder than one thinks they would be! I bet your daughter was just thrilled with it! Keep having fun and keep challenging yourself with new techniques and you will see your talent grow by leaps and bounds!

@ catlharper Thank you so much!! I worked so hard on them yet I completely wrecked the bottom tier when I initially began so I had to do it all over again.  The bottom was supposed to be a marble baby blue.  It took from 4:30pm till 4am for me to finish.  Hopefully, as I keep making them, I'll get faster.  It was a lot of work but seeing her smile made all the difference.  It was definitely better than the Edward/Twilight cake. I'll have to tell you the story one day.  ; )
