What's On Your Workdesk ? Wednesday #126-wedding cake practice



Ah...not much time to craft this week or next...wedding preparations in full swing...this is what I am doing tonight..............


Tonight is "practice wedding cake" night. I used to make lots of wedding cakes yyyeeeeeaaars ago and gave it up because I so loved the frosting that I gained about 5 pounds with each cake! LOL

I am thinking I need some more practice and also need to try a different frosting recipe just for the heck of it. (can I blame my dissatisfaction on the frosting???-it could not possible be lack of practice???)  GOODNESS... I need to figure it out before next week!

My son is more than happy to eat the samples!

Since I am in the kitchen tonight...I thought you might enjoy this sign I have hanging under my cupboard. Yep, this is so me!

Pop on over and say Hello  Julia and to all the crafters playing along...sorry I have not gotten to comment so much these last few weeks, but I promise I will be back to "normal" after 11-11-11!



Pin It!

I use to be a cake decorator too. I got into some wild cakes but by today's standards, mine were tamed. I can believe you are doing the wedding cake TOO. OMG! You're amazing. Thank you for sharing this special time with us and giving us sneak peeks.

I love that sign! No way...you're making the cake too? Hope your daughter knows how much she's loved.

I took cake decorating years ago and just couldn't deal with the greasy mess. Of course, things have improved much since then. Can I lick the beaters?

Lunch Lady Jan said...

No, Charlene, I want to lick the beaters too!! LOL
You're very brave doing the wedding cake, hope all goes smoothly :)
Hugs, LLJ #14 xx

I think you'll need a long break in the sun when this is all done! Love your kitchen sign.... reminds me of an Absolutely Fabulous episode where Edina was hating herself for being heavy and said "I know there's a skinny person in here just trying to get out" to which her old mum replied "Just the one dear??". Priceless!

This sign is priceless and needs a home in my kitchen!

Elena said...

I love cakes too! And frosting is my favorite part of it!
LOVE the saying hanging on your kitchen.Looks like there is skinny girl inside of me too, only chocolate and sweets hide her pretty good. :)
Thank you so much for visiting me today, Sue! My room doesn't always looks neat; when I make something it looks like tornado came through. :)
