Just poppin' by with some cool cake pics. I made my graduation cake for Wilton Course 2 tonight, and I'm also sharing pics from my Gumpaste Flowers class on Monday (Sweetpeas and Orchids). The cake is a low fat yogurt, vanilla cake. I worked out today, so I can have a piece. I'm really trying to keep my activity level up with some good workouts. I can't run right now because I've done something to my calf muscle...how weird is that?!? Watching PHOENIXRISING *LINK* working so hard this week is really helping me to stay motivated though. That newbie enthusiasm is so catchy :O)

Awesome daisies, I could not do those to save my life. I hid them between other flowers.
Your cakes have been fantastic.

You really are an artist. These cakes are beautiful.

I know you are a bit stressed over the gain and I'm sure you're tuned in to your stats but you've been hovering around the same 10 lbs axis for months. I think that is phenomenal! Just a bit of a different perspective.

Sorry about the calf injury! Ouch!

Wow, so pretty and the cake looks wonderful! Makes me hungry for cake in fact. I LOVE me some cake with frosting!

Your flowers are beautiful.

Try not to be discouraged over the gain...are you drinking LOTS of water?

Your orchids turned out amazing!!! Great job! :)

Ok, and it's not just that I'm biased, but your cake REALLY was the best one last night!

Phoenix! My Royal Icing flowers SUCKED, and my buttercream was a bit too stiff, and see that big empty space on top of the cake where there's *suppose* to be a flower? Well, why didn't I put one there? DUHhhhh, it's been bugging me ever since!

Phoenixrising said...

OMG... did you see the OTHER cakes?!?!?! Seriously, you are TOO hard on yourself! No one else see's the flaws you do!!! I truley thought yours was beautiful, and your royal icing flowers are NOT sucky! In all honesty... they look a lot like mine! Actually, I think your daisies are better than mine... brat!!! Your roses too... grumble grumble... I think I taught you TOO good, you're better than I am!

and no... what big empty space?

Shrunk said...

On the top right side, between the two daisies, is a BIG empty space of just my icing mound! LOL! It's driving me nutso. Ah well...there's only like 2 pieces left, so it must not have been *that* bad ;o)
