Hi all! I'm a crafster Newbie but have been a lurker for a long time. I've gotten so much inspiration from all of you I figured it's about time I started posting some stuff.
I got inspired by the rainbow cupcakes / cakes that everyone's been making and showing off. I don't know where the exact tutorial is located on crafster but I got inspired by all of you and especially used this:http://omnomicon.blogspot.com/2009/01/how-to-make-rainbow-cake.html
Also used riverwatson's fondant tute here:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=238211.0
I've been doing kids birthdays for awhile. I do princess parties where I go dressed up as a princess and have dress up for them. I'm also a talented facepainter, but this is my first elaborate cake endeavor. I ALREADY GOT ASKED TO MAKE LIKE 3 MORE DIFFERENT CAKES FOR FRIENDS' KIDS BIRTHDAYS!!! I guess I'm gonna have to add that to the services I offer.... wow I'm weird.
The party theme was "Dreamland." Everyone wore pajamas and we had dreamland / huge candy decorations. I made a heart shaped cake because that's what the birthday girl wanted but there was no way that would be enough cake for 30 guests plus parents! Sadly I don't have any pics of that one because my forndant work kicked ass on that one!!!
The bigger party cake is supposed to be a giant cloud hence the layers of fondant.... also it was like 2:30 when the cakes went in the oven and the party was at 6:30 and I was in charge of every tiny detail. Isn't necessity the mother of invention? I was putting the cakes in the freezer to cool then crumb coating then putting them back in to harden then rolling out fondant like a mad woman. It all got done though.... and the kids were SHOCKED at the inside of the cake!!!
Since I'm a newbie I don't think I can upload but here's the link to the pics on photobucket:http://i446.photobucket.com/albums/qq187/thirdmary/DSC03398.jpghttp://i446.photobucket.com/albums/qq187/thirdmary/DSC03399.jpghttp://i446.photobucket.com/albums/qq187/thirdmary/DSC03400.jpghttp://i446.photobucket.com/albums/qq187/thirdmary/DSC03401.jpg
Thanks for looking... sorry for the long diatribe!
