So I was pretty stretched this week with these 2 cakes and 2 other Teacher Appreciation cupcake cakes which I didn't take pix.
Farewell cake given by me as a gift. Was too knackered to include details.
I got out of my cake-sabbatical for this cake. Couldn't resist it. But, tell me, how much will a cake like this fetch where you are and I will tell you how much I asked for it. This is an 8-inch cake, sugar everything...from shoe, rose, plaque(little bit of cheat here...used printer), cords (painting this was a pain)... I can see from the pix that the job isn't very well done. Will touch up in the morning.
Incredibly beautiful! You are so talented!
Too nice to eat!
TP, that Happy Birthday cake would be over A$100.00 in the area where I live. You certainly have not lost your touch during your sabbatical, magnificent work!
Thanks, Teresa and Bill
I charged A$50 or US$41. Ah well...the day I do it more for business, rather than pleasure, I'll bite the bullet and charge as I should.
Forgot to mention...the plane cake is butter cake (egg yolk-base) filled with rose petal swiss meringue buttercream. The bday cake is a white chocolate butter cake using the leftover whites from the first cake (waste not ) filled with rich chocolate buttercream (only 2 ingredients, butter and chocolate in it). Another reason (besides lack of time, slightly painful hands) I avoid making cakes is I really put on weight when I do them. I tell myself I'm just tasting when I eat the sculpted-off cake but somehow it takes many tastes before I am satisfied. Buttercream.....mmm.....yum!
