a sampling of what I've been up to....(picture heavy!)

So I have hardly been on LJ lately. Life has been a mess. It's pretty well sucked.
However, my cakes have kept me focused when nothing else did. So I figured I'd share a few with you guys that I have done over the last year or so.

Life Short Eat

Did my SIL's wedding about a month ago. Just now getting around to posting pictures here. The ceremony was casual and beachside. She didn't want anything too fussy or formal. We decided on a simple design...sand sculpture, sea-shell strewn, that kinda' thing. The bride's dress was candlelight so that's what color I tinted the buttercream. Top and bottom tiers were Vanilla Almond. Middle was Chocolate Fudge. I don't do normally do cakes, so this was the first I'd done in years. It had a bunch of imperfections, but the bride and groom were happy, as were the guests, and I guess that's all that matters. Reception site had white sheer curtains so no color. To help define the tiers a little more and showcase the shells, I put crushed graham cracker/Nilla wafer sand on each of the layers. Not my original vision for it, but, oh well....

First picture of edible shells sent to bride for approval. Made them in really small batches so each one would be different

My First Commissioned Cake


Hi everyone, I was just wondering what your thoughts were on this cake I made. I was asked to make a 21st birthday cake themed on hairdressing for a friend of a friend of a friend. It was the first one I had been paid for and I got £30 for it (£12 profit). What do you think? I've never had any classes or anything, I've sort of taught myself from books and lots of mistakes...

Wilton buttercream yield

Can anyone give me an idea of how much you can do with one batch of Wilton buttercream? I know it will ice a 8-9 inch double stack, but what about cupcakes?

I ask because I'm going on a trip and have been asked to make goodies. I plan on bringing a half-sheet cake, a character cake, and 24 cupcakes. Since it's a 5 hour drive I'll be decorating the stuff there. I'd rather not bring half my kitchen. I thought about getting a big tub of the pre-made icing, but it comes flavored. :(

Hello all I am new to this group. I am looking for the strawberry shortcake princess cake in 2007 yearbook. I was wondering if anyone had that yearbook, and if so could they email that page with the pictures and the directions. I am making it for my daughters 2nd birthday and that is the theme of her party. I would very appreciative if someone has that.
