Carrot spring cake

Carrot cake, covered un cream cheese buttercream which I then smoothed out as best as I could. I the air brushed it yellow and the figures are made of fondant. The bugs and flowers were made days in advance and let dry out so they could take the form.

Latest cakes

I have been busy with new full-time job, part time teaching job lately. But I have found time to make a few cakes.

I also finally bought an airbrusher so I have been learning how to use it. I also did my first topsy turvy cake.

So pics galore:

Quick post

A cake I made for my mother-in-law's 89th birthday and a cake I made for a Christmas party.

The cake is creamcheese covered in fondant with fondant accents

The cake is white cake, dyed green and red, covered in fondant with fondant accents. The little Christmas tree is made out of gumpaste, painted dark green. While the paint was still wet I added the sprinkles

Thanksgiving cake

Ever since I started teaching at 2 colleges my time doing cakes has been scarce (not to mention almost non-existent). Add to that my carpal tunnel problem which meant that I was not sure how it could affect me kneading fondant.

Well I am happy to say I can still cover a cake in fondant. I made this small cake for Thanksgiving.

The turkey was done last year out of gumpaste and I kept it in storage. It was an extra turkey I made so I was happy to reuse it. I made sure to take lots of breaks to rest the hands as well.

Just a quick hey

Just a quick post to let you know I am not dead. I'm just too busy for baking and decorating (and now having been diagnosed with carpal tunnel it'll be a definite influence in my cake making, sniff!)

quick post

Quick post to let you know I am not dead. Just that I haven't baked or decorated any cakes since the 4th of July.

Speaking of which: 

White cake mix from scratch. I just added red and blue coloring

To create this deep red and blue, just mix colors (and be fearless). For red use: deep red, pink and orange. For blue use several tones of blue. I used royal blue and sky blue.

After baking

Covered in buttercream

Looks yummy
