Opening up another session of FNCC! Everyone is welcome to share what they have been up to this week, post photos of their work, ask for help or provide help if you are able to.
Sorry I'm a day behind but better late than never, right?
No cakes for me this week somlookimg forward to what everyone else has been up to.
Grandson’s birthday cake and cookies.
This is so cute, Marian64. Great looking buttercream bark.
I made this for my daughter this week. I carved it from round cakes which was tricky but fun. Covering with fondant was less fun. The back is all saggy and ugly. Then I doodled all over it with edible markers.
You did an amazing job, Louglou! Your carving is spot on and beautiful "doodling"!
@SandraSmiley thanks. The bark is actually almond bark.
@louglou you did an amazing job of carving out that skull and I love the doodling.
@GIGGLEBOX2014 love your cake. The texture on the top layer is perfect.
Gigglebox, that is a beautiful cake! I love the comb you used on the top tier.
Marian64, I am really surprised that the bark is almond bark, but what a great idea!
Thanks! This was for my bf's grandparents.
The comb was 1 out of an 8 pack I received and it may be my favorite! I love the texture combs! The more I looked at the top, I wanted to continue it down the bottom tier. lol
This was my only cake this week. I have my 2nd Icing Smiles cake due the 26th!
I agree, GIGGLEBOX2014, the cake would have been lovely with the comb texture on both tiers, as well.
I like the rosettes, but everyone wants them. I'm getting rosette burn out. =p I like doing different things. With it being my bf's family I could have probably changed it and her not mind, but I wasn't wiling to take the chance. lol
I agree, they are beautiful, and yours are exceptionally well done. I made one cake for us with the rosettes and it was a whole lot more icing than we care to eat. For our (IMike and mine) own dining pleasure, we prefer the new naked frosting or none at all.
Yes! I use much more on rosette cakes than any other cake, and most people do not like that much icing.
I cut the 6 inch top tier today and got 15 slices!!!! With a cake being 5 inches tall with 4 layers that is still a large piece of cake!
I know! The cakes I make for us are usually about 6" tall and we cut pieces no thicker than on of Mike's fingers (average man's fingers).
I've got a photoshoot happening today so worked on the dummy cake all weekend. Also had a seaside photoshoot last week. I'll post pics of both when I get them :) xx
Sounds exciting, me_me1!
Also, how rude, meant to say I love the carved skull! Very impressive carving skills there! I cheat and use the 3D mold.
Photoshoot was fun this week! Very different!!
Absolutely stunning, me_me1! If love the forest theme and the deer!
Thanks, lovely!! x
Meant to say, "I love the forest theme and the deer"!
