I really should just go for it and make up some business cards, but I keep teetering back and forth on the whole cake business idea. I LOVE designing and doing. But I neglect my family & home when I jump into the cake zone. A far too delicate balance for an all-or-nothing girl!
This is the cake that engulfed my weekend:
A 40th Anniversary. She quilts amazingly. He woodworks amazingly. So that's what I combo'd here, adding some of the tools of the trades. I wish I had taken detail pictures of my pincushion, spools of thread, needle sitting on top, scissors (all completely edible), etc..I always kick myself when I don't get pictures, but in the stress of finishing up it's hard to focus on that!
Jim built me an awesome system (with two wood rounds and a rod) to support the woodworked cake stand. I sculpted around the rod with rice krispie treats, then covered that with fondant (which was very tricky).
And here is the cake I did last week when I fell in love with ruffles..and anemones:
I can totally see this topped with one more ruffle tier. It would make a gorgeous wedding cake.
And shimmery girl cupcakes from two weeks before:
And this morning I've been swimming in cake company name ideas and logos.
I try to avoid it. Really...my life is plenty busy.
But I just can't help myself.
