And I've been working like a dog.
Sweet jumping Jesus on a jackhammer. The last month was the end of the wedding season, and it really did go out with a bang. Every weekend I was working until 3-5 in the morning and then back at work the next day around 9. It's been crazy. The last two weeks though, they've been relatively easy, I've just been lazy and recouping. But I've also had a few people light some fires under my ass about getting back to work on this blog. I mean, it's really you guys who suffer. The lack of cakes every week, Im very sorry for being so neglectful :p
well, let's start this off with some bags
I think this cake was mostly made by my sister (except for the little dentist insignia thing, that was all me)
Louis Vuitton anyone? And yes, it took me a long time to hand do all those monograms. =P
I remember this shoe giving us a world of problems, I think between my sister, my mother and myself, we all had to give it several tries. I went on to other cakes and I think my mom and my sister ended up crafting this soulful creature.
One of my more favorite type of candies. This cake was a lot of fun to make. All the decorations were hand drawn/cut out of fondant on a yellow buttercream covered cake. The three "dots" Were pieces of cake covered and shaped with fondant.
When given the instructions for the designs for this cake from my mother, I got "just make swirls" and swirls is what I made. My sister made the butterflies. Unfortunately for her, she got typecast and now she makes all things butterfly. Special bonus, the spectral image of a ghost baker can be seen behind this cake. WoooOooohhhhOoohhhh.
This does however remind me that I have to design a Nightmare Before Christmas cake at some point. And also a Graveyard Book cake by the 31st.
Well, that's only a handful of the cakes I had left from a few months ago, that's not even touching the stockpile I have on my cameras.
No Im going to go back and recoup from a very good night last night with good friends and Halo ODST. I went over to hang out for a few hours, ended up playing until 5 in the morning. It was such a bittersweet moment. So I think im going to have a xbla shooter of Sam and Max.
Take care everyone!
PS - if you were currently unaware, I do have a twitter that I tend to update a bit more than this when things get busy, usually with some cake design or random thought (as you do on twitter) so check it out if you want some more raw cake moments. (warning though, contains harsh language or macabre humor.) Twitter
