Opening up another session of the FNCC! Everyone is welcome here. ALL levels of cakers are welcome to share their week, photos of their work, ask for help if needed or provide help if they can!
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!
Wow catlharper that golden snitch is perfect!! I did finish this cake a few days ago and put it up on last weeks post but the pictures weren't very good and they came out sideways so thought I'd put some more picture up hope u guys don't mind!!☺️☺️ This one was pretty time consuming and I made the bee wings out of gelatin plastic!! Quite happy with how this one came out!!
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.
@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!
So I haven't baked for about 18 months, but have come out of retirement for my nephews 1st birthday
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. : )
@ 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. ; )
